Ung Omsorg (Young Care)

Ung Omsorg (Young Care) creates bridges between generations by organizing youth on elder care homes to engage in social activities. The mission is to bring that little bit extra care to the elderly, and at the same time offer young people a first engaging part-time job. Hopefully we will also inspire some of the young people working with us to a future career in the care sector.
