Support o unaccompanied minor

Empowerment of foreign minors

2011 till 2011
Bruxelles, Belgium


Every year, more and more unaccompanied foreign minors arrive in Belgium. Many of them find themselves in extremely precarious situations, with very little support. However, the traditional reception systems for young people in exile, which are often very institutional and procedural, are insufficient to grasp all the problems in which these young adults find themselves and are therefore too often harmful to their development.
Civil society counteracts this situation by developing constructive reception initiatives.


Young adults that have been exiled and who have dropped out of or broken away from the traditional reception programme.


Le projet Relais entend prendre en charge des mineurs étrangers non-accompagnés qui manifestent des difficultés d’adaptation dans les structures d’aide traditionnelles. Une maison d’accueil est mise à disposition des jeunes en situation d’exil, qui offre un espace d’hébergement mais également un accompagnement sur les plans juridique, psychologique et social. Un soutien à la scolarité est également proposé.

« Relais » abrite les jeunes pour un séjour limité au temps nécessaire à préciser leur projet personnel et à l’inscrire dans une dynamique porteuse.


The support of the JP Foundation enabled the renovation of the kitchen and showers of the reception center. This made the center a more welcoming place.
