Groups meet about once a month. Besides these regional groups, the Board of DFUNK has established International Section. The Cultural section is about to be established. The Board has 7 members and 2 suppleants. DFUNK has about 800 members pr. May 2010, and the amount of members is rapidly expanding. DFUNK gets some basic funding for its functioning from Danish Refugee Council. Besides this, we have profits from our events and the membership fee. DFUNK works on volunteer basis, but has one employed Youth Consultant at the office, as well as a trainee.
