Strengthened Support for Child Asylum Seekers

Published fredag 17 februari 2006 kl 10.51

The Swedish government has decided to strengthen support to child asylum seekers through an annual payment of more than US$ 6million to municipalities for preventive measures.

The payment will be based on the number of asylum-seeking children staying in the municipality.

According to Sweden’s Minister for Migration and Asylum Policy Barbro Holmberg, ”The circumstances of many children seeking asylum in Sweden are difficult, and they need support.

Holmberg added that ”The Government wants this payment to strengthen preventive work so that children and families can receive assistance at an early stage.”

There are more than 9 000 asylum-seeking children spread throughout most of Sweden’s municipalities.

Approximately 300 of them have come to Sweden without their parents, and according to the government, these children are in a particularly vulnerable situation.
