Växjö is committed to counter segregation
Växjö Municipality receives more than 10 million Swedish crowns from Tillväxtverket for long-term work to counter segregation. The 2020 funding, which is 10,661,000 Swedish crowns, will be used to strengthen efforts for women in exclusion, children and young people in school and society at large.
– With this investment, we can continue our work to reduce segregation in the municipality of Växjö and to make our crime prevention and security-creating work even better in the entire municipality. We also have the opportunity to further supplement the police work to increase security in society and work on crime prevention, says Anna Tenje (M), chair of the municipal council.
It is the Board of Education, the Work and Welfare Committee and the Municipal Board that receive exactly the same amount of money for the work. The money will go to efforts to increase the school result among foreign-born and efforts to get more women in foreign studies to come to work or study.
