SLA central Switzerland

In Switzerland there are ten independent regional SLA associations with up to 300 stuff members working for disadvantaged people. They offer education, training, activity and job integration programmes for the unemployed. In addition, they advise and accompany asylum seekers, refugees and migrants.

The SLA is a member of the Swiss Refugee Council (SRC) and is involved in numerous groups that seek to influence social and political issues in Switzerland.

In 2007 the Swiss Labour Assistance received the directive to implement in the project of education in the prison system.
