Yesterday Kompasset was part of the annual collection Kirkens Korshærs Landsindsamling 2018. Volunteers, staff and friends of Kompasset attended and collected more than 10,000 DKK from local walks around the neighborhood in Kbh NV. 20 different routes covered the area so many locals were visited by Kompasset’s collectors.
Thank you all very much for supporting and joining! It was a nice Sunday with adults and children.
Thanks to Brødkunsten, Jagtvej for donating breakfast buns and Favori, Frederiksborgvej for donating sweet baklava.

The total collected amount will be known in a few weeks and Kompasset can then plan how the funds can benefit the users in the best way.

Kompasset is looking for two interns for the spring of 2019 (feb-aug).
We are recruiting one intern for the Outreach team to assist with street work on Vesterbro and Indre by. This intern will also take part in some daily tasks at Kompasset, Kæmnervej Nordvest.

We are also recruiting in house – an intern to assist with running the mentor programme The Extra Mile as well as taking daily part in the day shelter and counseling service of Kompasset.

Please view the two job postings here. Both positions are without pay.

Dear supporters
Below you will find our report from our emergency night shelter that was once again hosted by Hellig Kors Church in Nørrebro. A big thanks to all of those who contributed this year: the church and congregation, volunteers and donors of food, funding and other very important stuff. Also thanks to our users who helped keep the emergency shelter a safe place for all.
Open the report to read more about the operation, numbers etc.

Hellig Kors Kirke 2017 – 2018

Hver dag møder vi i Kompasset hjemløse migranter som bor på gaden, og særligt her om sommeren hvor alle nødherberger er lukkede, må man sove udenfor.

I forbindelse med udvidelsen af zoneforbuddet, som nu omfatter en hel kommune, ser vi eksempler på at folk der bliver dømt for at sove i utryghedsskabende lejre, får en bøde på 1000 kr. og et forbud mod at færdes i hele Københavns kommune. En overtrædelse af dette forbud kan medføre 18 måneders fængsel og en udvisning af landet.

Om man må færdes i kommunen hvis man har en aftale hos lægen, skal på arbejde eller har andre gøremål, er ikke helt klart i informationen fra politiet.

Se billedet som udleveres til den pågældende og læg mærke til, at Frederiksberg kommune selvfølgelig ikke er inkluderet i den forbudte zone!

Kompasset is closed for 2 weeks from July 27th 2018.
We will reopen in our normal schedule on Monday the 13th of august 2018.
