Botkyrka is a municipality characterised by contrasts. For example, the 86 000 inhabitants speak about 100 different languages. Botkyrka lies between Stockholm and Södertälje and is divided into five districts: Alby, Fittja, Hallunda-Norsborg, Tumba-Grödinge and Tullinge. The municipality is governed by a coalition of Social Democrats, the Left Party and the Green Party.

Botkyrka has everything, from lively suburban centres and pleasant residential districts with interesting architecture to rural districts with beautiful nature, forests, meadows, lakes and coastline. Here entrepreneurial activities are encouraged, small enterprises mix with international conglomerates, and many cultures, languages and religions meet together.

Botkyrka has a young population, in comparison both with other towns in the county and with the country at large; the average age is 37 years.
A lot of help is available to you in Botkyrka – you can obtain advice about your rights as a consumer, about energy, about budgets and debts, about alcohol, drug or gambling addiction, and there is special advice available to you as a woman. For young people, there is a youth reception, a reception for young people with addiction problems, and support for those with children or teenagers. There is also a guidance centre for adult education, an employment and competence centre and a job centre.
