Danish Red Cross (DRC)
Is the leading organisation in Denmark on all humanitarian, social and medical tasks connected with care of asylum seekers. The DRC has managed reception centers for asylum seekers since 1984 and works to ensure that asylum seekers in Denmark have a safe, meaningful and dignified life, while waiting for a clarification of their case. We support asylum seekers to maintain and develop a perspective for the future, whether they will stay or be refused asylum. Their first special centre for unaccompanied children opened in 1990. DRC’s work with UASC includes operating special centers (school units, health clinics, social measures), recruiting guardians and observers, psychological screenings of the children, screenings of kinship relations, providing support to professionals in municipalities as to how children in migration are received, developing methods to secure involvement and participation of families (including the child and the extended family). The DRC works with an appreciative, holistic approach to the children in accordance to their standards on ‘The pedagogical work with unaccompanied minors’. The staff will focus on the child’s individual skills and on providing the necessary support to ensure they are resilient, high-spirited, patient and tolerant. The children have responsibilities and duties at the center, and school, activities and training for daily life are always part of the routine. If the child has special needs, social care and/or psychological help will be provided.
