Becks Plastilin is a member of the association of the Freundeskreis Mensch e.V.. This association was founded in 1972 as “Friends of the sheltered workshop and home for disabled e.V.” (incorporated society). The association’s purpose and task is the establishment and maintenance of sheltered workshops (social enterprises) as well as the creation of regular jobs and appropriate housing options for disabled people.
In the meantime the Freundeskreis has developed into an association with a wide range of offers. All these measures are aimed at integrating people with handicaps into the world of work and at creating permanent workplaces for them. The association understands this service as “diakonia”, the pastoral welfare work of Christian communities. The institution is open to all people with disabilities.
