Innovation for Integration


In late 2015, Sweden received around 35,000 unaccompanied refugee minors, representing a historical peak. This rate was over 10 times higher than comparative figures of 2010. Sweden faces significant challenges in effectively integrating these minors, hence a critical need to build and scale new solutions, for a successful societal integration.

In response to this need, Reach for Change has launched a thematic incubator exclusively focused on improving the lives for unaccompanied refugee minors. Building on our research by assessing the need of the groups, gaps and interventions, we identified four focus areas for the incubator; “social & legal rights,” ”internship & employment,” “education,” and “social networks.”

Over the coming years the incubator will support the co-creation and scale up of selected initiatives through: (i) funding, (ii) business advisory, (iii) research and advocacy support. In addition, we believe that (iv) the platform for collaboration, will be critical for selected organisations to work collectively, explore synergies and to reach a common goal.

Organizations in the portfolio

Through the Innovation for Integration program, Reach for Change provides incubator support to six organizations operating within the identified focus areas: Barnrättsbyrån, Kompis Ungdom, Mitt Livs Val, Right To Play, IT Guide and The Good Talents.
