About the volunteering opportunity

It's about listening to people without advising or judging. The team will have an open ear for fellow citizens and people who want to communicate - in other words, to be there for other people. The project is not a substitute for therapy, coaching or a doctor's appointment. The "listening bench" will be placed outside if possible, and an alternative will be communicated in the event of bad weather. One aspect of this is to remove the taboos surrounding loneliness, grief and other challenging circumstances in our society.
A second aspect is the low threshold, so that people have access to an open exchange without having to enter a building or book an appointment.

The listening bench is a project group within the framework of MitmacherINnen Ingolstadt.
The MitmacherINnen are a dialog project of the city of Ingolstadt to strengthen civic engagement and to implement community-oriented projects that serve to achieve the goals of Ingolstadt's sustainability agenda. The MitmacherINnen projects are financially and structurally supported by the Sustainability Department of the City of Ingolstadt.
