Coordinating centre for traumatised refugees

Additional information

Welcome to Centra!

Our goal is to continuously improve the care of refugees with traumatic experiences in Hamburg. We offer qualified, trauma-specific counselling and treatment. We work closely with many other services for refugees. Further training, supervision and intensive networking should contribute to further increasing the trauma competence of the entire support system and thus expand the spectrum of services for those affected.
