In Stavanger, Pårørendesenteret has established a physical center where people can come together. In response to the war in Ukraine, they established a new youth initiative for the youth who arrived from Ukraine. Support, recognition, hope, meetings with safe adults, and practical and emotional support in daily life are crucial for children who are caregivers. The care for children has evolved since the 2010 legal addition regarding children as caregivers. Children of parents with refugee backgrounds and other immigrant backgrounds have been less recognized. This project aims to raise awareness and contribute to increased expertise in services and offerings for this group of children. The goal is better health among these children.

North Star supported Pårørendesenteret in 2022.
