Ústí nad Labem
The People in Need has been operating in Ústí nad Labem since 1999, as the first non-profit organisation to deal systematically with the issue of socially excluded localities, first by field social work and free-time activities in the then notorious Matiční Street and gradually afterwards in other city districts.
At this moment, the branch works mainly in the Předlice, Krásné Březno, Mojžíř, Matiční Street and Střekov areas.

Social work is our core service, therefore we have social workers’ offices in practically all relevant locations. The most common issues that people need to consult with our workers at the Ústí branch of PIN usually concern housing (help with looking for suitable apartments, advice with signing agreements etc.), assistance in communication with the authorities (people don’t know their way around the system of benefits, they need help with filing applications etc.), debt (help with setting up a schedule of instalments, declaring bankruptcy, family budgets etc.), employment (finding a job, getting a qualification, solving work related legal disputes etc.).
Among services for adults in Ústí nad Labem we offer:
