The CURANT project provided integrated services for unaccompanied young refugees once they reach adulthood and are no longer entitled to benefit from social protection as an unaccompanied minor. It combined co-housing and social integration schemes with volunteer buddies (young local residents aged 20-30 years old) for 1-1 integration and circular integrated individual trajectories. Affordable co-housing units for both unaccompanied young adults and buddies were made available in the city. The trajectories of the young refugees involved were treated in all their complexity instead of focusing separately on different components. A guaranteed, safe, affordable and quality place to live pivoted around a circular set of social services including language courses, training and health care. Different city departments, regional and local agencies for health services and education as well as NGOs were actively involved in the implementation of the project.

During its implementation, the UIA project has capitalised on its experience so that it can be shared with peers. The outputs displayed on this page are the result of this process.
