Are you an asylum-seeker or have been granted asylum recently? Are you identifying as LGBTQI+? Are you over 18 years old? Do you feel like you could use some support and someone to talk to?

If you answered yes then we would like to welcome you to RFSL Stockholm’s counselling service for LGBTQI+ migrants. Our counselling service offers one to one meetings in a safe space. 

At our counselling practice you will meet an experienced social worker who will focus on your need to discuss thoughts or ask questions. 

Here are some examples of topics our counsellor can advice you on:

  • Sexual identity (gender identity and sexual orientation).
  • Sexual practices (sexual activities and behaviours).
  • Sexual health (self-care, safe sex and testing)
  • Thoughts and feelings about your asylum process.
  • Your wellbeing or concerns about a friend.
  • Assistance when you need to reach out to healthcare,
    dependency care and government agencies. 

Our counsellor does not offer legal advice. However, we will be more than happy to direct you to someone who can answer any questions or concerns that you may have regarding the legal system. 

The counselling service is free. 

Our counsellor has confidentiality, which means that your conversations with the counsellor will not be discussed with anyone else. However, the counselling service is a part of an EU-funded project called AMIF (Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund), which is a project run by RFSL. In order for them to follow up and assess benefits and effects of the project RFSL Stockholm have to provide certain information that consists of:

  • The first three letters of the first name and the first three letters of the surname.
  • Date of birth, age and gender identity.

An authorised person within RFSL, who is connected to the project, will encrypt the information by creating an anonymous code. The encryption will then be sent to the sponsor of the project. The information may be subject to control to ensure that what our reports matches reality. This control consists of connecting random client codes to actual LMA-number, first and last name. These controls are carried out under strict confidentiality and only made for the above-mentioned purpose. Personal data is never disclosed to third parties.
