Our identity

REPER promotes the notion of well-being and balanced social life for everyone as an answer to the risks present in certain behaviors, attitudes and addictions. Based on a humanistic philosophy, our association contributes to develop self-esteem and self-affirmation, as well as integration and fulfillment of every person and group. Our work is founded on the respect of liberty and difference. Every human being has the right to gain access to education and health services.

Our mission

REPER is an association created in Fribourg in 2006. It was born from the unification of two organizations: LIFAT and RELEASE. The mandate has been commissioned by the Council of the State of Fribourg. REPER is recognized as a public service and it is granted by the financial support of the City and the State. Its social involvement is disconnected from any political attachment or engagement. REPER’s goals are to contribute to the promotion of health services, to prevent addiction behaviors and situations of risk as:

  • Affection and relational deficiencies
  • Addictions
  • Social exclusion and stigmatization
  • Non-employment and non-education

Our working procedure

REPER relies on about forty professional workers divided in five teams. Each group is composed by community workers, educators, teachers, psychologists, socioprofessional instructors and social workers. We encourage young people to build an open, independent and balanced life. In this context we collaborate with reliable adults. Our internal system of work privileges an interdisciplinary structure and partnership. The same philosophy is applied to our public, associates and mandatory relationships. Our purpose is to find new ways to solve difficulties through a creative, realistic and co-constructive vision.
