Project to support the integration of temporary protection holders at local level in 2022 – Teplice

Sub-project: Number 8 – Intercultural assistance in Teplice

Duration of the sub-project: 1. 6. 2022 – 31. 12. 2022

Place of realization: Teplice

Implementer: The Statutory City of Teplice

Implementer of the sub-project: The Counselling Centre for Integration

Financing: The Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic under the programme Municipal Projects to support the integration of temporary protection holders at the local level in 2022.

The target group of the project are holders of temporary protection living in Teplice and representatives of the majority society (Municipality, Labour Office, NGOs, accommodation providers and others).

The aim of the project is to provide basic information to persons with temporary protection through the services of intercultural assistants, to help with the language barrier, e.g. between officials and the target group, and to help in orientation in a new environment. Thanks to these services, the risk of misunderstanding or misjudging the situation is minimised. Intercultural workers will assist in accompanying, assisting and interpreting at offices, schools, doctors’ appointments, etc. The target group can then be assisted in translating information materials into their mother tongue for better understanding.
