Integration

The County Administrative board plans and participates in regional integration efforts, and may grant financial contributions to municipalities. All newly arrived persons should, based on their own abilities, be given professional support to learn Swedish, acquire work and support themselves as soon as possible.

The County Administrative Board participates in the planning, organisation, carry out and follow-up of integration efforts. The work is carried out at national, regional and local levels in cooperation with municipalities, government agencies, businesses, organisations and associations.

Unaccompanied children

Every year, children arrive in Sweden to seek asylum. Most of them are accompanied by their parents, but there are also those who arrive without a parent or other guardian. These children and adolescents are included in the term unaccompanied. The County Administrative Board coordinates the reception of unaccompanied children with a focus on developing regional collaboration. We also work to promote the municipalities’ preparedness and capacity to receive unaccompanied children.

Social orientation for newly arrived persons

The purpose of social orientation is to make the settlement and participation in Swedish society easier for newly arrived persons. The information should be given as early as possible after their arrival to the municipality.

Grants to develop capacity and preparedness in the reception of newly arrived persons

The County Administrative Board can give compensation to municipalities who want to develop capacity and preparedness in the receival of newly arrived persons and unaccompanied children. We can also give compensation for developing collaboration between municipalities, as well as between municipalities and other actors with the purpose of making the settlement in society easier.

Developing activities with refugee guides and family contacts

Municipalities can apply for grants to strengthen and develop their work with refugee guides and family connections. The grants can, among other things, be used for creating networks and support language learning.
