Assistance after returning

Help with the first steps

The "European Return and Reintegration Network" (ERRIN) makes it easier for returnees to make a new start in their native country. 15 European states have joined forces for this. "Caritas International Belgium" is implementing the programme in Gambia.

ERRIN offers returnees from Europe assistance in various areas. For example: 

  • Legal  questions
  • Medical care
  • Long term accommodation
  • Education and language training
  • Job hunting
  • Business start-ups
