In Sweden the voluntary socialwork is a complement to the public authorities. The voluntary organisations has become more important considered helping people in different situations of need.
The aim of this study has been to examine the voluntary organisations meaning for individuals.
The aim was reached through interviews by five guests from different organisations.
We have also interviewed two employees from the different organisations to find out if there is any differences in their way of work.
This study indicates that the organisations means a lot for the individuals. The social network, something to do during the day, a kind treatment but also the milieu are factors that seems important for the individuals. The organisations even creates a feeling of connection and satisfy other kind of needs.
