Our service centres are there for you

The service centres are open meeting places for pensioners and unemployed people who need someone to talk to, something to do or support with their daily life. Helsinki has a total of 15 service centres. You are welcome to all of them, regardless of where you live in the city.

The service centres offer a nice way to spend time. You can go to these centres to read the daily newspaper or have lunch at the restaurant. Help is also available with matters related to various city services. 

You can explore the service centre premises and open group activities without having to enrol in advance. You can get a free-of-charge service centre card from the service centre information desk.
