Kompasset (The Compass) is looking for dedicated volunteers to help assist and counsel homeless foreigners without registration in Denmark. As a volunteer in Kompasset you will make a difference for some of society’s most excluded and vulnerable people.

About Kompasset

Kirkens Korshær’s Kompasset is located on Kæmnervej, Copenhagen NV and we assist homeless unregistered EU-citizens and people with a residence permit in other EU countries, who have travelled to Denmark looking for work and/or a better life. Many are in legal limbo and in doubt of their rights and entitlements. Sound advice about options in Denmark is urgently needed.

  • You will participate directly in the social and legal counseling
  • You will assist by helping service users with our computers, translate documents/CVs or simply socialize
  • You will accompany our service users and help translate when approaching the authorities
  • You will be available for comforting, supporting talks in our rest area

There are many ways of contributing and participating. Kompasset also has outreach work, a mentor programme, weekly bike shop and laundromat trips! Employees will be available for questions and debriefing during each volunteer shift.

We will make sure you are well prepared and offer:

  • thorough introduction to the target group, their needs and relevant legislation
  • qualifying courses and meetings with relevant topics
  • a great opportunity to learn and help fellow citizens

We expect that you…

  • sign up for one shift every week or every second week:
