Advice for newly immigrated children and young people on school integration

In NRW, compulsory education applies to all children and adolescents between the ages of six and eighteen. 

The aim of the newcomer's advice is to provide timely, qualified and age-appropriate training, which is based on the potential of children, young people and young adults. After the appointment, a detailed discussion will take place with parents/guardians/caregivers and the school-age child or adolescent. If necessary, an interpreter  can be arranged.

On the basis of this advice, the School Board for the City of Wuppertal provides the children and young people in Wuppertal schools with international language support groups/classes. The Wuppertal Municipal Integration Centre accompanies the receiving schools by advising teachers on language support/education as well as on other issues that arise.

Integration and Refugee Work Team at the Municipal Integration Centre (KI)

When refugees arrive in Wuppertal, the Department for Immigration and Integration is the first port of call. There they are provided with housing and the necessity and receive basic information in an initial orientation and a welcome folder.

The refugees are then assigned to a social worker for an individual initial consultation, who from now on is also the contact person for questions and problems in everyday life and accompanies them throughout the entire integration process. The social workers have divided their responsibilities into quarters and once a week (except Tuesdays) an open consultation. If necessary, you can also make an individual appointment. The consultation is free of charge.

There is a central advisory and coordination centre in the House of Integration

The consultation takes place across jurisdictions and therefore independently of the residence status of the refugees. Ganz gleich, ob das Asylverfahren noch läuft oder bereits abgeschlossen ist, erhalten sie hier Informationen zu u.a. folgenden Themen:

-          Sicherung des Lebensunterhalts

-          Wohnraumsicherung

-          Sprachförderangebote

-          Wege in Arbeit und Ausbildung

-           Anerkennung ausländischer Bildungsabschlüsse

With the support of the city of Wuppertal, GESA has launched the "Heckinghausen Volunteer Coordination" to promote and coordinate voluntary engagements. In the future, a coordinating force will serve as an interface between volunteers, interested citizens and other network and cooperation partners in the Heckinghausen district.

The goal of volunteering coordination is, among other things, to create a good framework for volunteering and to promote social coexistence.


Together with volunteers, creative minds and other neighbourhood actors, networked offers are created and work is done to improve the quality of life in the district. The focus is on establishing good information channels and networking between those responsible for the main and voluntary service.


  • volunteers and people who want to get involved
  • Quartiers-Actors
  • organisations and initiatives
  • organisations and sponsors
