Work with us to help Ukrainians get a better life in Sweden
We help our participants to maximize their chances of finding work and build a life in Sweden.
We offer flexible programmes where the participants learn and work in groups to gain knowledge, develop new skills and strengthen their social and workrelated networks.
The Care Myllret programmes are a part of the project Care: Myllret Skåne-Ukraina, which is financed by the European Social Fund. The aim is to make efforts for women and men who are covered by the Temporary Protection Directive as a result of the war in Ukraine, with the objective for them to find ways to work and to become socially involved.
The project is run by Fridhems folkhögskola in Svalöv as part of Myllret, a collaboration platform focused on lifelong learning for a good and sustainable work life. The collaborating parties are Malmö folkhögskola and S:ta Maria folkhögskola in Malmö, Skurups folkhögskola in Skurup, Ystad and Malmö, Albins folkhögskola in Landskrona, Sensus Skåne-Blekinge and Studiefrämjandet Skåne-Blekinge. These seven folkbildning organisations all have long experience in supporting refugees and new arrivals in finding ways forward, and all have their established relationships with local partner organisations, authorities and employers. The non-profit associations Hållbar Utveckling Skåne and Malmö’s local UN Association FN-förbundet Malmö with their volunteer network Support for Ukraine, are both involved in the project and contribute with knowledge and with a network of employers and people from Ukraine in Skåne.
Note: While we have several Ukraininan team members, we also have Russian team members, all with a track record of working for the Ukrainian cause. For practical reasons, a few people in the staff and some guests will be using the Russian language to communicate with participants, if the alternative is not understanding each other.
Care Myllret offers FREE, FULL TIME education and orientation programmes for adult Ukranians living in Skåne covered by the Temporary Protection Directive.

“In Sweden, it’s not uncommon that job recruiting happens through informal connections.
Our team works hard for every participant to get in touch with people as much as possible, with as precise matchmaking as possible. This makes a real difference”.
