A network of coordinators has been set up in five regions of Latvia. The main task of the coordinators is to prepare a personalized offer of information in accordance with the interests and needs of the potential remigrant and support them in their return to Latvia after a long absence, in their engagement in the local community and the labour market.

What information can the coordinator offer? Information on:

  • services for families with children,
  • business and employment opportunities,
  • housing offers,
  • other municipal and state services.

Several project managers cooperate closely with the regional coordinators. One of their main tasks is to address residents of their municipality currently living abroad and offer support for their return to Latvia. Upon the initiative of the “Centre for Demographic Affairs”, support for local level remigration project managers in 2018 is provided in Daugavpils city, Dobele municipality, Gulbene municipality, Rundale municipality, Ozolnieki municipality, Saldus municipality, Skrunda municipality, Smiltene municipality, Tukums municipality un Vecumnieki municipality."ten pilot municipalities in Latvia".
