Newcomers Youth is a project of RFSL Youth that began in 2016 with the goal of improving the mental health of newly arrived LGBTQI youth. Today, we successfully operate activities in Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö, and Luleå.
Besides the activities focused on our members, we also offer training opportunities for stakeholders working with newly arrived and asylum seekers.
Additionally, we have produced a variety of educational materials, such as guides, rapports, audio and video campaigns, films, etc.
If you want to join our activities, need support, or have more general questions, please get in touch.
Our staff can communicate in several languages and are familiar with the challenges of being queer with a migrant background in Sweden. We warmly welcome you regardless of gender, sexual orientation, color, ethnicity, legal status, ability, or religion. You are welcome, just as you are.
You, as a participant, may be an asylum seeker, undocumented, have been granted a residence permit, migrated with family or to reunite with a partner, to work, study, or for any other reason, and want to find a context together with other young LGBTQI migrants.
In addition to social gathering activities and youth camps, we offer free legal advice during the asylum-seeking process. We also provide information and activities designed to enhance the well-being of our members.
