Undocumented people

The unprotected community project

The Deaconess Foundations Unprotected community project assists undocumented people. This involves working with people who have received negative decisions on their applications for asylum, and instead of inaction provides them with community action and support.

In addition to creating partnerships based on trust, the project offers:

  • psychosocial support
  • counselling, service guidance
  • solid information about the implications of remaining in Finland without a residence permit, what the consequences could be, and the sorts of alternatives available.

The Unprotected community project is run at a day centre Al Amal.
