Project bridge



In Wolfsburg, refugee families have the opportunity to visit children's and family rooms in their accommodations. Pedagogical staff in the rooms welcome the families and accompany them during their arrival and orientation in Wolfsburg.

Relationships are formed through contact with the pedagogical staff. These relationships form a good basis for all further integration steps of children and parents.

Together with the pedagogical staff, the families take advantage of local offers and thus first get to know their district. Step by step, they open up their new living environment. This opens up perspectives that help them to integrate.

Subproject Description:

  • Children and family rooms:

    Open children's and family rooms are ENJOYMENT ROOMS


    ... where ALL children and parents are equally welcome.

    A gentle arrival, orientation and a first establishing of contacts shall support families in feeling gradually not so foreign anymore.

    1. The work in the children's and family rooms is intended to help families to arrive in Germany, to meet each other and to orient themselves. Here they find a welcoming atmosphere in which it should be possible to build relationships through respectful encounters.
    2. The work in the children's and family rooms should offer suitable support opportunities for each child according to his or her age.

    The work in the children's and family rooms contributes to the children arriving as well as possible at the next institution they visit (daycare or school).
