The B-UMF has been working towards the improvement of the legal situation of minors, who come to Germany without the support of a guardian since many years. They try to ensure standards of protection in line with international norms and best practices. The organization has a total of almost 150 members, including more than 40 other organizations. The Federal Association (B-UMF) has different goals: improvement of the reception process, enhance active participation within the society, impart knowledge (expert conferences and professional training), networking and lobbying, convincing political leaders. The B-UMF is actively engaged in raising an awareness or the concerns of unaccompanied minors among political parties.
