Do your days feel long or lonely? Would you like to socialise with others close to your area? Take a look at which recreational groups and meeting places are in your neighborhood.
You may be able to find fun activities and opportunities to socialise in your own area. Visit a community centre to meet with other local residents, read the daily newspaper or get digital support.
Helsinki also has a number of organisations and associations that organise a wide range of activities and provide information, services and peer support. Please contact Senior Info for more information on the activities of organisations.
