Fristaden r.f 

Help us create a safe and inclusive "Sanctuary" for everyone.

About us

Fristaden r.f. is a non-profit registered organization that has been active since May 2020. Our goal is to one day open the doors to a place for children and young people to gather and socialize in a caring and safe environment with their friends.


 The Fristaden r.f. - To give children and young people a safe haven.

In today's fast-paced world, it is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and forget the importance of creating a safe and nurturing environment for our children and young people.

That is why the work in Fristaden r.f., a non-profit registered association, is so important.

In recent years, Fristaden r.f. also developed to be able to offer employment to a rehabilitative workplace by entering into an agreement with the Ostrobothnian welfare area.

Free homework help for children and youngsters 

Guidance services for young people via Fristaden's "Dare to Talk" 

A rehabilitative workplace 

RIKU Crime Victims Emergency. Support for children and young people dealing with trauma or difficult family situations 

Samaritans of the Fristaden. Career counseling and job training for young adults 

Access to a safe and welcoming space for young LGBTQ+ individuals 

Our work

Right now, we all work on a voluntary basis on the board and plan for various digital tips for employment. Once a month we have a monthly meeting where we go through the entire month's statistics from the association's various platforms and through the statistics try to develop the association one step further. At the monthly meeting, we evaluate the work we have done in the last month and go through what we want to move forward with and develop.
