For the seventh year in a row, Brose has made a donation of 20,000 euros to the City of Coburg's coordination office for people with a migration background. Thanks to the automotive supplier's support, this position was installed in the Social Welfare and Insurance Office in 2016.
"Intercultural cooperation with appreciation, respect and tolerance are essential to the success of our company. After all, more than 30,000 people from 91 nations work at Brose. We also want to promote these values with our social commitment," explains Steffen Tauss, Vice President Social and Health Services at the Brose Group. "The City of Coburg's coordination office makes a significant contribution to the integration of newcomers in our society and makes it easier for them to get started in what is initially a foreign country. That is why we are continuing this long-term support even in the current difficult economic situation," Tauss added.
The coordination office at the Social Welfare and Insurance Office helps people with a migration background get off to a successful start in Coburg and provides support in a wide range of life situations as needed. In her daily work, coordinator Almut Hagner assists recognized refugees and migrants from crisis areas in the Middle East and Africa, ethnic German immigrants, but also EU citizens, for example, in finding housing or filling out forms for authorities.
"The continuing high demand, but also the positive feedback and the gratitude of the people seeking help, make us realize how important the work of the coordination center is. That is why we are very grateful for the cooperation with Brose and are pleased that, thanks to this generous donation, our offer of help to recognized refugees and migrants can continue," emphasizes Holger Diez, Director of the Coburg Social and Insurance Office.
