As a Geneva player in the field of better living together, the Hospice General works to ensure that everyone has a place in the community and can make a contribution.
Present in more than 50 locations throughout the canton, the Hospice General has a mandate to prevent social exclusion. To this end, it devotes most of its activity to social assistance for Geneva residents and to the welcoming of asylum seekers.
It provides social and financial support to people who are temporarily faced with precariousness so that they can regain lasting autonomy. It organizes and encourages actions aimed at cohesion, exchanges and mutual aid.
It also carries out other prevention and information tasks for all categories of the population.
Moreover, sport is recognized as a formidable vector of integration. To this end, the Hospice General promotes partnerships and organizes numerous events that allow beneficiaries to participate fully in Geneva's sporting life. These are opportunities for them to get out of their isolation, to promote their know-how, to meet and create links with the people of Geneva.

The result of a unique collaboration between three Geneva-based social enterprises, the Tourbillon laundry offers a unique and innovative approach that combines social inclusion, ecological efficiency and economic performance for the benefit of the community. It offers an unparalleled employment and vocational training ecosystem for people in difficult situations, as well as unparalleled know-how in the laundry business thanks to the three partner institutions.
With an ultra-modern structure of 1'500 m2 and adapted to people with disabilities, the laundry is based on the barrier principle of the separation of dirty and clean linen processing areas. The device thus guarantees an optimal level of microbiological hygiene. Several innovative technologies, some of which are new, have been implemented to meet environmental challenges, including a water treatment system that allows for over 80% recycling. All the equipment has been designed to optimize ergonomics and reduce the consumption of water, energy and detergent products.
The choice of quality that rhymes with social and environmental commitment!
