The Federal Association

Support – Information – Further Training

The bff is the federal association of rape crisis centres and women’s counselling centres in Germany.

The bff incorporates more than 210 rape crisis centres and women’s counselling centres. In Germany, they constitute the majority of mobile counselling and support facilities for female victims of violence.

We denounce violence against women and girls through public relations and actions. As an umbrella organisation, we exert significant influence on political decisions.

The bff conducts seminars and conferences, disseminates expertise from practice and research and develops information material on the issue of violence against women

Our leaflet „For Women – against Violence“ (in English) contains further information about us. You can get it for free at the bff head office.
