NesT - New start in a team: information event for honorary offices


We cordially invite you to a digital information event about the humanitarian admission programme Neustart im Team (NesT).

When? Monday, 13.05.24, 18:30 - 19:30
Where? On
Zoom, registration here

Learn more about the importance of safe entry routes for refugees and find out specifically how you can actively support and accompany refugees on their arrival in Germany as a NesT mentor.

In the NesT reception programme, the state and civil society work hand in hand. This collaboration enables refugees with special protection needs to enter Germany safely and legally. The most important pillar is personal supervision and the organisation of financial support by honourary offices, which come together to form a mentoring group. They organise housing in advance and support the refugees with their integration. The mentoring groups are supported by the Civil Society Contact Point (ZKS), which assists the honourary offices with all questions - including those relating to funding for housing.

With this event, we cordially invite you to find out more about the NesT programme and the expire without obligation, to ask questions and, if necessary, to make contact with other honorary offices.
