Abstract (EN)

Towards a successful family reunification project is a local development project, administered by EHJÄ ry. During the past years both EHJÄ’s professional support persons and the municipalities’ social services have noticed the particularly vulnerable situation of young immigrants, who need special support in situations of family reunification. The objective is to promote the integration and welfare of these young immigrants and their families, while in a challenging period of change in their life, and to prevent their marginalisation. The project is carried out in cooperation with the local municipalities of Naantali, Raisio, and Turku.

Angelegenheit/Herausforderung und
Ziele/Annahmen

EHJÄ ry has worked with unaccompanied minors who have become sponsors for their family members, and witnessed the challenges they face when being responsible for the reception of their families. Immigrants who arrive through the family reunification programme lack the 'slow adaptation' phase in the reception centre, and become dependent of the skills and capacities of the sponsor and friends. The youngsters who are of compulsory school age (younger than 17) are in the most vulnerable situation, because their integration is easily disturbed, if they are not directed to integration measures, e.g. language courses rapidly. The goals of the project are:

  • to untangle the challenges and special needs of young immigrants in the context of family reunification;
  • to create a tangible model of good practices for the reception of family members for municipalities; and
  • to untangle the challenges of family dynamics, and to map out forms and practices for social support.
Wie funktioniert das?

The project workers meet with the youngsters individually 2-4 times/month. Other family members are met occasionally if necessary. The support includes both practical help with bureaucracy, but also discussion and reflection of youth, family, school, hobbies, etc. which are current in the individual’s life. Work is carried out in close contact with municipal social workers to ensure that the project produces results that will be useful for professionals in the future. Different activities are experimented with NGOs, based on the needs observed when working with new-comer families. Challenges, good practices and professionals’ experiences are recorded and shared throughout the region.

Ergebnisse

The project will produce a guide of good practices for the use of municipal social workers and other professionals who work with immigrants. The guide will gather information and experiences from both professionals and the young immigrants and their families regarding family reunification. At the moment there is little specific information regarding family reunification and the professionals largely depend on their personal know-how – the institutions lack guidance if faced with personnel change. More importantly, there is little information on what goes on in the families when being reunited after years of separation.

Evaluierung

Regular feedback is collected from the steering group, and the social workers who have chosen the families who participate in the project. The clients’ feedback will be collected in the end of the project. Self-evaluation is also carried out by project workers on a regular basis.

Wer profitiert?
  • 14-21-year-old sponsors and immigrants who arrive through the family reunification programme,
  • municipal social workers and other professionals, who encounter family reunification in their work
  • other family members -youngsters and their families who immigrate in the future
