Abstract
In 2014 there were 81,301 applications for asylum to the Immigration Office, where 7049 of them were unaccompanied minors.

I have used the method qualitative semi-structured interview, and I have interview five staff who work at HVB homes for unaccompanied refugee children. In the analysis referenced the respondents that it is individual how the children feel and that many children have a need for support, for example psychological support. The accommodation staff try to create a sense of security and can offer to go away and talk when a child feel bad. The respondents lift social relationships to other children at the HVB home, recreational activities and interaction with other organizations as important. To conclude it would be interesting to do further research about what the unaccompanied refugee children themselves express about their need for support. (Less)
