People with impairments should be intensively supported in coping with life. Through its activities, Lebenshilfe wants to ensure that people with impairments can live as independently and normally as possible (in the sense of the normalisation principle) by means of individually tailored assistance.
To this end, it offers assistance and services itself and represents the interests of people with impairments in public and at political level. In addition, Lebenshilfe aims to protect the human rights of people with impairments in Germany.
