Are you interested in being an Ammehjelper or to be supporting member please contact us.

Remember, an ammehjelper is a mother who volunteers on her own time to help you. Her help is given without charge. That is why you may not get an answer at the first number you call. Please don’t give up – call the next name on the list, or send a text and ask when would be a good time to phone.  We are happy to help you whenever we can.

You may also find the help you need in our closed Facebook group ‘Ammehjelpsgruppen’.
