The ÖAR is politically independent and non-confessional. The ÖAR offers a wide range of services to member organisations, individual members and partners. The secretariat fulfils all administrative tasks forwarded by the representatives of the Österreichische Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Rehabilitation.
It is the point of call for all questions and problems, which are brought to our attention by the member associations, public authorities and by the general public. Its task is the coordination of all activities of the members of the board and staff members, as well as keeping the member associations and all staff members informed by means of personal contacts, telephone calls, the magazine monat as well as the website.
