Ukrainian refugees in Italy


So far, over 100,000 people have fled Ukraine since the conflict began and arrived in Italy, mostly women and minors. To ensure their assistance, a system has been defined that provides for different forms of support that are complementary to each other. In addition to placement with Italian and Ukrainian families residing in Italy at the ordinary network of CAS (Extraordinary Reception Centers) and the SAI (Reception and Integration System), a widespread reception system has been introduced which assigns a key role to Third sector, to voluntary associations and religious bodies. The association or body must guarantee, in addition to food and accommodation, help with school and work integration, legal guidance, linguistic literacy and psycho-socio-health assistance.
