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.

This toolbox contains 5 practical modules

1. Parenthood in transition, migration and identity 

2. Cultural awareness 

3. Children's rights

4. Roles within the family

5. Honour-based violence

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