EU-citizens who are coming to Sweden to beg is a current topic. The purpose of the study was to investigate the actions offered by the municipality and non-profit organizations to help these people. A qualitative approach was chosen and altogether five interviews were carried out, three with municipal representatives and two with different non-profit organizations. The result showed that there is a number of different actions and many of these are based on collaboration with the two parties. All informants were of the opinion that the implementation worked well but that there were clear limitations. The limitations included lack of knowledge about the current group and language difficulties. The results also showed that the most common merits was that the vulnerable EU-citizens were treated as people and that they got food and a roof over their heads. The results were analysed by previous research, Maslow's hierarchy of needs and Antonovsky’s sense of coherence. One of the study’s conclusions was that further knowledge about vulnerable EU-citizens who begs is necessary.
