Migrant Families Toolbox

The City of Gothenburg is developing a toolbox targeting parents in migrant communities.  The aim of the toolbox developed by the City of Gothenburg is to develop and strengthen preventive and promotive approaches to work against violence in a family context, including honour-based violence. This is carried out by enabling trust building dialogues between migrant parents and front-line workers who meet in urban or civil society services. One central part is to provide knowledge to parents about their rights to receive support from frontline welfare services, especially their rights to parental support.

The toolbox contains 7 modules centering on topics related to the well-being of migrant children and their families as they aim to navigate their new environment, and how frontline workers can assist this transition as safely and informatively as possible.

The toolbox will be supported by awareness raising material for front line workers and migrant parents. The awareness raising material includes a set of images that can be used when communicating with parents.
