More and more people from war and conflict-affected areas are now fleeing to Europe. The Swedish Church is located along the refugee road. We have competence in supporting people in crisis situations, creating good relations and meaningful activities, and focus especially on children's rights and women's rights.
The Swedish Church offers the new arrivals in Sweden, help on solving everyday problems, opportunities for spiritual guidance, psychosocial support and provides meaningful contexts. The church also conducts outreach activities, for instance, at the refugee camps and at the Migration Agency's centres.
Legal consultation to individuals is given above all, through the Advisory bureau for refugees and asylum seekers that the Swedish Church operates along with Amnesty, Caritas, Rädda barnen and the free Church Council of Sweden.
