Purpose
  • Language learning
  • Social inclusion
  • Employment
Information Sweden is a platform that collects information for migrants and refugees on: e.g. housing, education, employment, integration, community, health, residence permit and the civic society. The intention has been to create a “one-stop-shop” for all types of information relevant for integration and inclusion. It also includes a language introduction to the most useful terms for the newly arrived who have to navigate the system, from the legal obligations to civic information. Teaching material for those who teach migrants and refugees is also available. The portal intends to make it easier for the newly arrived to Sweden, and for them to find answers to questions on how Swedish society works and which authorities to get into contact with upon arrival. There is a step-to-step guide on how to get a residence permit and how to engage in Swedish society and to find a job or an education. The portal has been developed in cooperation with reference groups and contains different digital resources. The information is available in several languages: Swedish, English, Somali, Arabic, Dari, Persian, Russian, French, Spanish, and Tigrinya. The initiative has both information and learning objectives.
