  • UMs in Switzerland

ISS Switzerland aims to support professionals in providing a consistent level of emergency assistance across the country and finding long-term solutions which offer future prospects.

We advise minors on asylum claims and administrative processes and assess their personal situation to offer them the assistance best suiting their needs. ISS also looks for foster parents who could host the isolated minor.

 

To help with the integration process, we find out about and note their skills and set up professional integration plans in collaboration with the relevant services.

For those wishing to return to their home country, we use our international network to find individual long-term solutions. For example, we support young migrants to prepare for and embark on a career to give them a future in their home country.
