Newcomers Network and other networks

Participate in our Newcomers Network, who meet once a month.

The Newcomers Network is an informal network between both Danish and international newcomers, who meet several times a month.

Where and when?

The Newcomers Network often meet at one of Sonderborg’s cozy cafés or restaurants. They also organize the monthly events such as e.g. the Dansk Café, the Spouse Café and the Game Night.

You can follow the many and diverse activities of the network at the Facebook page Tilflytternetværk Sønderborg/Newcomers Network Sonderborg.

Events for newcomers

  • Friendship family by KITS (The Churches' Integration Service in Sonderborg)
    A friendship family is a lifeline to the Danish society, for example if you are a refugee family from Syria or a immigration family from Russia. The families share a common need for a network of Danes in order to fully integrate themselves in Denmark. A contact family can help you by explaining the Danish values and traditions, so settling in will become easier.

  • The buddy programme
    A facebook group for newcomers to the Sonderborg area, who can be matched with locals.
