The Werkhof Ost

The Werkhof Ost is a social institution in the Gmuender Eastsite. It is a meeting place for residents, and a training place for community workers and social enterprises. The workshop is equipped with everything necessary for the craftsmen’s service: machinery and equipment for wood working, metal working, painting and gardening.

The Werkhof Ost assists people excluded from the labour market (long-term unemployed with a focus on people with a migration background, repatriates) essentially by two qualification strategies:

  • development of social skills
  • qualifying employment of so-called „professional quarter assistants“;

The social enterprise Werkhof Ost has as main task the development of new employment areas in the neighborhood context.

This new service offered in the crafts area should promote opportunities of vocational development and integration into the labour market for people living on unemplyment and social benefits (ALG II).
