The Vdk is advocating for social justice. Their goal for their members is inclusion in society and work spaces as well as social security.

The Vdk is neutral to politics and confession and works in all federal states in Germany. As a non-profit, non-party and independent self-help organisation, the Vdk is only financed by membership fees and donations.

Full-time staff advises and helps in social justice cases as the contact to social agencies and departments can be quite challenging. They will support with applications, filling forms, checking official letters, enter objections and represent members at the social court. More than half of the lawsuits end positively.
Every year the VdK helps people to receive social benefits which they are entitled to.
