Good to see you in Warsaw
A new centre for the comprehensive support of foreigners is now in operation. The centre is operated by the Warsaw Family Aid Centre at Targowa Street 81. The facility cooperates with humanitarian organisations working in the city.
Assistance at the new point is provided to all foreigners residing in Warsaw, in particular:
- Ukrainian nationals with a temporary protection status,
- foreigners who have been granted refugee status or subsidiary protection,
- foreigners in need of information and support.
The Warsaw Family Aid Centre is a place of support based on the knowledge and experience of specialists and will offer a wide range of services, including:
- implementation of individual integration programmes (IIP),
- psychological and educational support,
- assistance in dealing with official matters,
- legal advice,
- Polish language courses,
- career guidance,
- training courses and workshops, including for the staff of offices and institutions in the field of cooperation with and handling of foreigners.
Anyone in need will be able to use the point from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 6 pm. Located on the ground floor of a building fully adapted to the requirements of people with special needs, the facility's premises are almost 700 m2 (with approximately 600 m2 of floor space). They include: 3 conference rooms, 5 offices for individual consultations, a computer workspace for clients, and a playroom for children.
The new centre will operate thanks to the cooperation of the City of Warsaw with humanitarian organisations. UNICEF handled the furnishing of the playroom and consultation rooms, and partly covered the staffing costs; UNHCR equipped the meeting rooms with multimedia equipment and provided the services of some of the specialists, and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) will take care of employee training.
The new Warsaw Family Aid Centre is located in the Praga-Północ district, at Targowa Street 81.
