This is a qualitative study about unaccompanied refugee’s support that they can get from Social Services and Migration Board. It’s a survey that is made in Skellefteå Kommun by interviewing four professional workers, two at the Social Services and two at the Migration Board. The questions in this study deals with the social support and how age may affect this support. The study highlights the difference to arrive as an unaccompanied youth under the age of 18 years or to be of the legal age as defined in Sweden.
The data in this study is collected by semi-structured interviews and was processed by content-analysis. The theories this study are based on is social support and models for integration. The discussion and analysis is about how age is an important part in a youth’s life and how important it is to get the right age right away. The conclusion is that the Migration board has to find ways to determine age as fast and safe as possible for the kids wellbeing. This study also shows that it is easier to come to Sweden as a kid than as a adult. Another conclusion, based on problems indicated by the Social Services about young individuals having to move around, is that such a phenomenon may create feelings of unsafely among the young ones.
