Consultation and support


We are here for you. Just call us if you like to report a crime or a case of discrimination. Call us if you are looking for a counselling interview. You can reach us every day from 5 pm to 7 pm on the assault-helpline. Outside these times you can leave a message and call-back number on the answering machine. Within 24 hours we will contact you. After this first step we also offer you a personal counselling interview if you like.

Assault-helpline: 0049 (0) 30 216 33 36


Every day from 5 pm to 7 pm you can meet one of our employees in the rooms of Mann-O-Meter. If you like, we can also arrange an appointment outside of these hours with you. You do not have to file a report to receive advice and help from us. Our counselling interviews are confidential and on request anonymous. You can make use of our help once or long term. We also counsel relatives and witnesses of a crime.
We would like to help you with questions and problems, so that you can make confident decisions and enforce your demands. You set the pace. We offer you information and support in finding contact to the police, doctors or lawyers. We also arrange help clarifying insurance issues or entitlements to benefits.


You are not alone. On your wish we accompany you to the police or to a court hearing. Because these are not every-day experiences the way to these institutions can be very burdening. It is often a great stress to reencounter an offender in a trial. In such cases one of your employees will be by your side. They will explain the process of the trial to you and also give you extra security through their presence.


We are in contact with doctors, lawyers, psychologists and the contact person for homosexual lifestyles of the Berlin police. We know their help services and can show you the way to other special institutions. We support you in getting access to those offers. We also help you in dealing with the formal issues.

Conflict mediation

If the legal punishment of the offender is not your major concern, there is the option of conflict mediation, for example, a victim-offender-mediation. During this process, the offender has to deal with the crime. He has to be willing to apologize and provide adequate compensation. We help you to prepare for such a meeting.
