As an important contributor to the community around us, Ambea plays an active part in developing Sweden’s social welfare system. We believe in working together and finding solutions to the shared challenges that we face as a society.
Ambea strives to take an active role, providing new knowledge and new perspectives for creating the care of the future. We also want to contribute to a more balanced debate about the matter of care – a dialogue where the needs of the individual are in focus.
Ambea wants to promote increased integration in society as a whole and to prevent exclusion.
Ambea and its operations Nytida and Vardaga are running several projects in order to offer internship, training and possibility of employment for new arrivals. We co-operate with among others Arbetsfömedlingen (the Swedish Public Employment Service) and the education company Consensum.
Through our co-operations, we arrange recruitment meetings, where new arrivals elected by Arbetsförmedlingen get to meet representatives of Nytida’s and Vardaga´s units. Suitable candidates are offered initial internship, then education and in due time possibility of employment. During the internship, the candidates also study Swedish, and get language exercise at work.
In January 2017, Ambea signed a letter of intent with Arbetsförmedlingen in order to receive 500 new arrivals during a period of three years, for intership, work training and possibility of employment.
The purpose is to operate within the framework of Arbetsförmedlingen’s Sweden Together (Sverige tillsammans) initiative and the “100 Club” to introduce new arrivals to jobs in the care profession to facilitate integration language learning. The background to the move is the government’s initiative on integration, which enables Arbetsförmedlingen to offer support and packaged solutions for
Ambea works actively to increase interest in pursuing a career in care. Since 2008, our Vardaga operations have worked together with Young Care (Ung Omsorg), a company that employs young people who are dedicated to working with the elderly. Through the project, young people visit some of our facilities on Saturdays, Sundays and school breaks. The youth from Ung Omsorg serve as an additional resource for our regular staff and can enrich the lives of our elderly care recipients.
As a member of the Almega Employers’ Organisation for the Swedish Service Sector, we work with other private-care actors to clarify the significance of privately operated care for increased quality, freedom of choice and diversity.
Ambea also works to promote harmonization of legislation so the same high standards can be applied to both private and public care providers. Such laws create the conditions needed to achieve higher quality in care and create fair competition, which in turn increase industry development and innovation.
In the public sphere, we also raise issues about legislation and regulations that we feel create a barrier to running our operations in the best possible way. Through our Lära education programs, we train care personnel and participate in research in the area of care.
Ambea cooperates with and supports organizations working with important issues for us, and whose activities are closely related to our business. In 2016, Nytida was a Diamond Sponsor for the “We Rule” (Kung Över Livet) fundraising gala, an event to bring attention to neuropsychiatric functional disabilities and raise money for research.
