The name of the foundation is The Foundation projekt UDENFOR
The registered office of the foundation is the City of Copenhagen.
The objective of the foundation is to work to improve the conditions of those excluded from society through
- identifying and documenting expelling factors in society in order to prevent further expulsion, if possible.
- to communicate knowledge of expelling factors to prevent expulsion and means to improve conditions of those already excluded.
- through practical work, strive to improve the conditions of those already excluded.
The activities of the project should reflect that expulsion always include a multitude of professional approaches and the staff of the project should be able to meet this through practical social work as well as research and education.
The activities of the project should always be characterised by experiment, and as such it is never the purpose of the project to perform permanent and established social work.
The objective of the foundation is non-profit/charitable.
projekt UDENFOR’s basis for funding is made up of national means, private means and own earnings.
Since 2010, we have been on the Finance Bill and before we received subsidy from the special pool for the social area. We aim at the national funding amounting to approx. 80 percent of our total income.
An important part of our additional earnings stems from funds from foundations of special project and additionally from gifts and inheritance.
Own earnings are consultancy fees, lectures and education.
Women who are exposed to violence risk becoming homeless
Homelessness is often the result of an interplay between several factors, of which violence is just one of many risk factors. Violence multiplies a woman's risk of falling into homelessness because violence typically starts a chain reaction in many other areas of life, which may lead to exclusion and homelessness. It is well documented that violence against women has important implications for women's health, housing, employment, economy and legal rights. This has been studied both in Denmark and many other countries. However, even though the problem is well documented, the conclusions of the research has not yet led to legislation or initiatives that effectively can prevent and curb violence against women.
