In addition, there are several municipalities that are responsible for the operation of asylum centers along the same lines as the Danish Red Cross. The centers are spread all over Denmark, and asylum seekers are usually accommodated at the centers while their case is being processed.
Municipalities are also responsible for the well-being of children. This means that the individual municipality is responsible for the well-being of any children who are accommodated in an asylum center located in the municipality.
The municipality has an obligation to act if a child is not thriving, and to provide help. This applies both to children who have sought asylum with their families and to unaccompanied minor asylum seekers.
