Putting people first: providing security, creating opportunities, embracing change

IFAK e. V.

IFAK e.V. is a self-governing organisation made up of immigrants and locals for multicultural child and youth welfare and migration work which at the same time is the agency funding several facilities and projects in this area.

IFAK has been operating since back in 1975 as a state-recognised independent youth welfare organisation. The Förderverein IFAK e.V. was established in 2005, and combines and coordinates the project work of the various associations. The members of both the Board and the working teams are on principle multiethnic.

In order to counter the growing trend of juveniles turning to Islamist networks, the model project "Advice network for tolerance and cooperation" was launched in 2012 in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.
Since 2017 this project is continued under the name “Beratungsnetzwerk Grenzgänger”.

Its many years of experience make the IFAK organisation an important, valuable partner for the work of the Advice Centre on Radicalisation.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
