WelcHome: An innovative way to successfully integrate minor refugees
WelcHome is a new integration framework for unaccompained foreign minors involving the local community. Family life and contribution of volunteering associations are central to WelcHome strategy. We have met 300+ families for selection, participated to 40+ workshops in schools, organised 4 training workshops in different regions, built a proprietary web platform and most of all successfully assigned 25 minors to family custody. Another great result is the definition of a project management model based on the participation of public institutions, health services and volunteering associations, and their involvement in decision-making processes.
