Accommodation for Ukrainian refugees at De Koepel

The main building at De Koepel accommodates approximately 400 Ukrainian refugees. The council rents the main building and 2 annexes for a 3-year period, to be used as a flexible reception centre. This allows shelter to be provided for refugees in the short term. The first group to be accommodated at De Koepel were 60 Unaccompanied Minor Refugees (AMV). This group was temporarily accommodated in Oude Vest - the former post office. In the longer term Ukrainian refugees, people with refugee status and other urgent home seekers may be accommodated here.

The council continues to look at other locations in Breda which can provide shelter for refugees. They are doing this along with other councils in the region.
