Caring for unaccompanied and separated children from Ukraine

FRA moderated a session at a European Commission meeting on care and guardianship for unaccompanied children from Ukraine.

Participants discussed how to ensure separated and unaccompanied children are assigned a guardian, how to recognise existing guardians from Ukraine for children evacuated from institutions, and what type of support they might require.

The European Commission will follow up on the good practices and recommendations from the discussion. This is part of the implementation of the European Commission’s 10-point plan: For stronger European coordination on welcoming people fleeing the war from Ukraine.

Over 30 experts from Member States, civil society, and international and European organisations attended the meeting on 30 May.
