The most important thing he needs right now is an assistant, says Walid Chahrour, head of the bbz. The “Advice and Care Centre for Young Refugees and Migrants” on the fourth floor at Turmstraße 72 in Berlin’s Moabit district is bursting at the seams. Its core task is advice and help on issues of: residency and asylum law / the child and youth services act / psychosocial care / vocational orientation and planning vocational goals. Schools and other training institutions can also come here for advice. Young people can get help with schoolwork, one-to-one or in groups, in the back rooms of the centre.

The bbz has four staff members, two of them half-time. The other helpers are volunteers – and they too need coordinating. At the moment, all the coordination goes via Walid Chahrour, plus the young people’s worries and the contact to lawyers and the authorities. The bbz has recently set up special advice sessions for Syrian migrants and also advises single women with children.
