Welcome to Crossroads

Welcome to Crossroads – Information and support for foreign EU migrants

Tool

Crossroads is an advice and support centre for people from other EU countries that live in poverty or homelessness in Stockholm.

Crossroads works on behalf of our participants to counteract all kinds of subjection. Crossroads offers advocacy services, various courses and Swedish civic information as well as food, shower and opportunities to laundry, warmth and rest.

At Crossroads, both personnel and volunteers work to give advice and support, facilitate and assist in contacts with public authorities and organizations, employers, landlords and caregivers.

Crossroads is run and financed by Stockholms Stadsmission in collaboration with the Public Employment Service [Arbetsförmedlingen], the European Social Fund [Europeiska Socialfonden], the Salvation Army [Frälsningsarmén] and the City of Stockholm [Stockholms stad]. The City Church [Citykyrkan], Doctors of the World [Läkare i världen], New Community [Ny Gemenskap], the Red Cross [Röda Korset] and St. Clara Church [St:a Clara kyrka] collaborate also with the project.
