Social integration - promoting an inclusive society

In Switzerland, too, we experience social inequality, which mainly manifests itself in a lack of inclusion or social participation of disadvantaged groups of people.

We are committed to ensuring that particularly vulnerable people can participate in society on an equal footing and have prospects for shaping their lives in a self-determined manner. We therefore support organisations that offer inclusion measures or improve quality of life for migrants, the long-term unemployed, people affected by violence, people with disabilities or those at risk of poverty to obtain their rights.

We also support organisations that make a socially meaningful and ecologically sustainable contribution to combating food waste by distributing food to the needy or recycling it.


On the open labor market, people with impairments show significantly lower employment and higher unemployment than people without impairments. In 2019, 68% of people with impairments living in private households were employed, while another 4.5% were unemployed and looking for work. For people without disabilities, the corresponding proportions were 84% and 3%, and for "severely impaired" people with disabilities, 39% and 7.5%.
