A little about us:
Den Frie Rådgivning is a voluntary social association that offers free counseling for vulnerable people through our two efforts, PROP and Open Counseling. We work with help for self-help, so that users can eventually solve their problems themselves. Open Counseling is aimed at users who do not have the necessary knowledge, resources or, for example, language skills to be able to function in society on an equal footing with other users. Advising users is often about solving current problems or challenges and then equipping them with knowledge about the way our society is structured. It is volunteers who advise users on understanding official letters, filling in various
forms, as well as contact with authorities, private companies, etc. In this work, written and oral contact with various administrations in Odense Municipality and the Danish Immigration Service constitutes a significant part.
Does that sound like something for you? Or if you just want to know more, contact Den Frie Rådgivning via the 'contact organisation' form.
We are looking forward to hear from you.
