Abstract [sv]

Studien undersöker volontärers upplevelser kring att ha öppnat upp sina hem för att ta emot en ensamkommande ungdom som blivit uppskriven till över 18 år av Migrationsverket. Studien har fokus på betydelsen av det ideella engagemang som nätverket “Blomman” bidrog med för ensamkommande unga. En kvalitativ metod användes bestående av sex semistrukturerade intervjuer, som hölls med sju informanter. Målgruppen är de frivillighem inom Blomman, som under 2017 tog emot eller hade ett ensamkommande barn hos sig som blivit uppskriven i ålder. Resultatet visade att ideellt engagemang är av stor vikt när det kommer till hanterandet av ensamkommande unga. Frivillighem bidrar med medmänsklighet och emotionellt engagemang. Det framkom dock att teoretisk kunskap krävs för att kunna se till de mest utmanande behoven. 

Abstract [en]

This study is about volunteer workers and their experiences about having an unaccompanied that has been written up in age to over 18 years by the Swedish Migration Agency. The study focuses on the importance of the volunteering that the network “Blomman” has done for the unaccompanied. The study is based on six semistructured interviews that we had with seven individuals. The informants are volunteers that have opened their homes for the unaccompanied. The result shows the importance of volunteering when it comes to the handling of unaccompanied. The volunteers contribute with human compassion and emotional commitment. However it appeared that theoretical knowledge might be required to handle the challenges that the volunteers will encounter.
