vulnerable conditions and to create a dialogue between them and the other stakeholders in
the street environment. The method is mobile teams working in the street environment and in
temporary settlements. The mobile teams will also work to support existing activities for
vulnerable EU citizens in the region and help them to help the target groups get
empowerment and skills to benefit from in the long run. The teams shall consist both of
people with the same language and cultural skills as the target group and co-workers with
relevant training and experience in field-work.
Both public and civil society organizations are involved in the project. There will be activities
in several areas of Southern Sweden. The mobile teams will be based in Gothenburg, Malmö
