Important Turkish social integration programs for Foreigners

Social Integration Assistance for Foreign Citizens in Turkey for the elderly and disabled (Sosyal Uyum Yardımı SUY)

Social Integration Assistance for Foreigners by the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services provides Social Integration Assistance to foreign citizens in order to provide temporary or international protection to people living in Turkey.

There are criteria for people making a request for assistance, The people who will benefit from the aid as a result of the researches are provided with the Red Card, and apart from refugees, there are many foreign nationals residing in our country. Since there are financial problems in the process of getting used to and adapting to our country, many of them cannot make a living. Some assistance is provided by the state so that these people do not suffer while continuing their lives in another country. Social Cohesion Assistance is one of them.

The aid program prepared for foreigners is only given to people who meet the conditions. The amount to be paid is given according to the number of people in the household. A regular payment is made per person per month. The ESSN Program is a social assistance program with the partnership between the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services and the Turkish Red Crescent.
