The County Administrative Board operates and participates in the planning, organisation and implementation of actions for new arrivals. This takes place at both a national, regional and local level in cooperation with municipalities, government agencies, organisations and associations.
Efforts for newcomers and unaccompanied minors
We will help to ensure that the municipalities are prepared to receive new arrivals and unaccompanied minors. We do this in several ways, including by signing agreements with the municipalities about the reception of newcomers and negotiating with the municipalities regarding the reception of unaccompanied minors.
We support the municipalities
The County Administrative Board's task is to support the municipalities in the coordination of municipal activities such as Swedish for Immigrants and civic orientation. Additionally we allocate government grants to municipalities to facilitate settlement, raise the municipalities' preparedness and reception capacity and develop activities with refugee guides and family contacts. We will also follow up the organization and implementation of measures for newcomers and unaccompanied children, at both a regional and municipal level.
