Registering and protecting displaced Ukrainian children

Taking into special account the need to protect children and youths who arrive in Portugal without an adult minding them, the Government has set up a special multidisciplinary group with teams from the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, the Ministry of Justice, the SEF– Borders and Immigration Service, and the High Commission for Migration.

A platform was created to register cases of unaccompanied minors, which also allows the search for foster care available, as well as identifying voluntary transport initiatives on national soil.

At the moment, you can contact this platform via the email, which will be complemented with a telephone hotline, beginning March 15, from 8h to 20h, trough the number: 300 511 490.

It is essential to reinforce the importance of identifying all the children in this situation, whether already in Portugal or in transit, in order to ensure their safety and full protection, as well as access to all the support structures in our country.
