Child Protection

How can eligible Unaccompanied And Separated Children receive their assistance?

  • In July and August 2020, eligible UASC aged 16 and 17 years old will receive their financial assistance through the Post Office. SMS messages have been sent to each child individually. Assistance should be collected between 19 July to 19 August. Children collect their FA using their original UNHCR Card, or with an original UNHCR appointment slip.  The Post Office’s working hours are from 8.00am – 2.00pm, Sunday to Thursday. The children can approach any Post Office in their area.
  • Eligible UASC aged 15 and younger will continue to receive cash over the counter at Caritas and will receive an SMS notifying them of their appointment date.
  • If you face any challenges collecting the assistance, contact your caseworker or [email protected]
