Refugees & Migrants
Applicants for international protection, refugees and migrants seek international protection and need the support of Caritas Luxembourg when they arrive in the country and for a few years following their arrival.
Integration and social cohesion
This assistance work is essential to ensure that they are properly integrated into society and thereby ensure the country's social cohesion.

Caritas Luxembourg is a member of the Collectif Réfugiés Luxembourg (Luxembourg Refugee Collective - LFR). Together, the members of the LFR mobilised in 2022 on a number of issues and formulated demands on asylum and integration to the political parties with a view to the 2023 general elections.
