Discussing strategies for refugee children in Vienna

One might be under the false impression that we can forget multiple disadvantage and severe trauma when visiting well developed services and a great city like Vienna. But problems find their way such as the rapidly rising number of refugee children here.

It was interesting to hear how specialist services rationalise their input; and how the SOS Children’s Villages had to respond in a short time by opening new care homes and appointing skilled staff. The highlight was clearly Hannes and his Psychology team based within Welfare Services – brave investment in the current climate, and plenty of innovation in engaging refugee and other vulnerable young people.
