Family Support Committee

FSC: Helping Members to Help Themselves 

  F ounded in 1990 to help UNWG members experiencing difficulties. For 21 years we have worked to  

upport spouses and families having problems with family related issues.

oncerns of ours are the employment opportunities of family members, the rights of divorced spouses in respect to pension rights, reparation, health insurance and also issues relating to family entitlements. We refer members to appropriate professionals.
  The Family Support Committee has compiled a resource book "Finding Help in Vienna" for our members to obtain help during difficult times. The current 2011 edition has been updated and expanded based on “Crisis in Vienna”, a booklet first published in 1997 by the International Women’s Council and revised in 2001 by the UNWG.   A new section on schools and kindergarten has been added in the current edition.  We believe, then and now, that a woman is better to help herself when armed with the knowledge of her options and alternatives.  UNWG members may access “Finding Help in Vienna” in PDF >>here.  User name and password required.  Please contact the UNWG office for details.  
  For further information and confidential assistance, please call any of the members of the committee. Contact details are given in the current Newsletter.
