Many reception centres try to be considerate of families and single parents. Some of the accommodation centres have family areas, but it is often impossible to provide separate areas as there is not enough space. Some federal states try to accommodate vulnerable asylum applicants in individual, peripheral apartments where possible.
Where can I find my family?
Inform the authorities that you have relatives or that they travelled with you. You can also contact the asylum counselling service which can be found at every reception centre.
