About 300 school-age children from Ukraine in GL

The number of refugees from Ukraine in Bergisch Gladbach is rising only slowly, but many are preparing for a longer stay. Just over a quarter of them are children who need a place in school. The bureaucratic processes have settled down a bit, but now there is a change within the social system – the municipality therefore appeals to those affected to report to the aliens office and the job center.

The city administration presented the latest figures to the Social Affairs Committee on Thursday night: 1,120 displaced people from Ukraine currently live in Bergisch Gladbach, 379 of them in municipal housing, of which 741 are privately housed.

708 of the refugees are adults, 547 women and 161 men.

412, however, are under 17 years of age, and of these, about 300 are thought to be of school age. In the age group 0 to 6 years, the city registered 114 people, between 7 and 12 there are 161 children and between 13 and 17 years another 137. So many children and young people who are cared for in already crowded schools and day care centers Must stay.

Pragmatic solutions for school children in demand

Brigitta Opiela (CDU), who is heavily involved in caring for the refugees in Refrath, reported to the committee that many of the people from Ukraine want to stay in Germany; Many of the children do not yet have a school place, so pragmatic solutions must be found quickly.

The city has not provided any information on the number of young Ukrainians already going to school; the district administration’s municipal integration center is formally responsible for this.

New bureaucratic action

The registration of refugees in the city’s social system is now going well after initial problems, the administration said. The payment of benefits under the Asylum Act is currently being shifted from checks to bank transfers.

However, there is a new major bureaucratic action on 1 June: the social benefits will then be processed via the job center or via the basic security system. This requires new applications.

The city administration has for some time promoted that Ukrainians should first get a (temporary) residence permit from the immigration office (from the district administration) and then report to the job center – so far, however, without the great response. Although the immigration office works through and also offers appointments on the weekends.

According to the municipality, the new registration has benefits for everyone: the benefits are higher, access to the health system is easier – and the city’s coffers are also facilitated.

How and where people from Ukraine should register is explained in detail in this article. Here are the key points again:
