1. Register Your Interest
Sharing accommodation brings advantages for both sides. Refugees are able to live in adequate accommodation, learn the language better, and establish a more independent everyday life. While the host will gain the opportunity to learn a different culture and express solidarity towards people living in a new environment. If you want to take part in this, sign up here
. When you register your flat we ask for some details about your living situation, such as the number of flatmates, the languages you speak, your city and surroundings etc. This information will help us match hosts with refugees. Registering your interest with us is not binding, but just the first step in a longer process. Our ambition is always to ensure sustainable matches, and it is important that each party feels comfortable throughout the entire process. Please observe that we are still in the building phases of this organization, and as a non-profit our work is completely volunteer based. For these reasons, it may take us a while to make initial contact.
2. Getting In Touch
After you sign up, one of our volunteer matchers will contact you via email or phone and answer any questions you may have. If you are offering a room, we will visit you to asses the available space before we search for a potential tenant. We believe that personal chemistry is very important to a successful match, and for that reason the process is conducted through a series of steps which ensures a suitable living situation. When we believe we have found a potential match we will put you both in contact so that you can get to know each other. If everybody is happy, the moving in process can begin.
3. Here we go!
It the match feels right for both parties the new tenant will move in as soon as possible. We will provide suggestions for establishing a contract which we strongly recommend both parties to sign. Two weeks following the move-in date we will contact you to make sure everything has gone as planned and all is well. This ends our involvement in the process, however you are of course welcome to contact us with questions or thoughts relating to the situation. We as a non-profit organization have a broad network and are happy to guide you to a suitable authority or organization based on your concerns.
