    Cooperation between civilian support centres is the key to their effective work. This was emphasised by Iryna Vereshchuk, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories, during a meeting on the activities of the Coordination Civilian Support Centres.

    The discussion gathered together representatives of the Ministry for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, the Ministry of Social Policy, the Ministry for Veterans Affairs, the Office of the President, regional military administrations, international and civil society organisations.

    The participants of the meeting reported on the work of the Coordination Centres and made suggestions for improving the mechanism of their work.

    Thus, in addition to the Coordination Centres operating in each region, the establishment of such centres in local communities is underway.

    It should be noted, these Centres coordinate the provision of comprehensive assistance to internally displaced persons, veterans and other categories of citizens affected by russian aggression.

    According to the Deputy Prime Minister, systematic coordination and cooperation between all regional and local Coordination Centres is needed to improve the system of comprehensive support and assistance.

    To enhance interaction and resolve problematic issues, the official initiated a monthly meeting with the participants present at the meeting. This will help to develop and disseminate good practices.

    Among other things, they discussed cooperation between the Coordination Centres and international humanitarian organisations. The focus was on the humanitarian needs of the regions for the winter period.
