Social partnerships optimise knowledge sharing. Nykredit is currently engaged in one social partnership. We believe that our people can make a difference to those participating in the programmes. And we believe it is rewarding for us as well. Around 40 of our staff volunteer their professional knowledge and experience of financial matters and act as financial mentors to people who need a helping hand.
Counselling of battered women
Under a programme called Råd til Livet, which is a long-standing partnership between the Mary Foundation, Mødrehjælpen, LOKK (a national organisation of women's shelters) and Nykredit, battered women are offered social, financial and legal counselling. Nykredit's staff provide financial advice tailored to the needs of the individual women. The objective is to provide the women with a better financial overview and empower them to manage their personal finances on their own. The counselling is offered in about 25 locations across Denmark, at Mødrehjælpen's premises and at crisis centres.
