The center welcomes EU citizens, third-country nationals (people with permanent residence permits in another EU country) and asylum seekers. Most of our guests are vulnerable EU citizens who flee extreme poverty in their home countries. They use the right of free movement within the EU and come to Sweden to seek a better life for themselves and their families.
EU-center opened at Hornstull in 2014 and eventually moved to Fridhemsplan in 2016. In order to meet the needs of the target group in the best possible way, EU-center collaborates closely with the City of Stockholm and other non-profit organizations.
The staff at EU-center speaks many different languages, such as Swedish, English, Romanian, Romani Chib, Polish, Spanish, French, Ukrainian, Russian, Arabic, Turkish and German.
