Advisory centres in Germany

There are many advisory centres, but only some have experience with forced marriage, threats, control and violence in the name of so-called “family honour” or the problem of abduction. Think about whether you want to be advised by email, telephone or in a personal conversation.

The online advisor SIBEL advises by email.


In urgent emergencies you can reach the crisis centre PAPATYA by telephone. To do this leave your name and telephone number at the Youth Emergency Service +49(0)30-610062 or the Girls’ Emergency Service +49(0)30-610063. We will call you back.

Perhaps you would prefer a personal advisory conversation. You can find an overview of advisory centres here.

In addition, you can go to the local Youth Office. The Youth Offices are required to provide protection to children and it is their job to advise minors and young adults.

If you are being acutely threatened, you can call the police on 110.
