Coffee Without Borders and counselling open every Wednesday


CWB & Counselling of Free Movement are open every Wednesday from 5 to 8 at Lymy (Pengerkatu 6). For councelling please book a time slot through email (vapaaliikkuvuus(at)gmail.com) or Facebook if possible.

Free Movement hosts an open, free-of-charge café in Helsinki and Tampere. The café is meant for all those who love freedom and hate borders. You are welcome regardless of what it says on your passport or whether you have one at all. We offer space to hang out in nice company and a program of talks, movies etc. concerning migrants’ rights.

The Free Movement offers counselling to migrants and their supporters. In counselling, we discuss, for example, the asylum process and the threat of deportation as well as the process of applying for a residence permit based on work, studies or family ties. Counselling is offered by activists who are familiar with the migration administrative process.

If you want to discuss your situation in detail, you should bring along all the documents related to your case. Discussions during counselling are confidential – no information is shared with third parties. Counselling sessions take place mainly in English and Finnish. For counselling in your own or other languages, please bring an interpreter with you or tell us beforehand that you need one.
