The Kallio Family Centre is located next to the Kallio Office Building, on the renovated premises of the former Kallio Health Station and maternity and child health clinic. 

We have put together comprehensive family services at the Kallio Family Centre, ranging from preventive services to special services. At the family centre, you will receive support for your family according to your needs.  

The services of the Kallio Family Centre are intended for families who reside in the city neighbourhoods of Kallio, Vallila and Herttoniemi. 

The Kallio Family Centre also serves families with children in the southern and central major districts of Helsinki in many matters related to the health care and social welfare of families with children. These services include, for example, social counselling for families with children, speech therapy, physical and occupational therapy and the family counselling clinic. The southern district comprises the part of the inner city south and west of Töölönlahti and Pitkäsilta as well as the island of Lauttasaari. 

We have also assembled centralised Swedish-language services and therapeutic work for families with infants at the Kallio Family Centre. 

If necessary, we will also offer services of other service centres at the Kallio Family Centre, such as adult social work services and adult substance abuse and mental health services. 

Our services also extend to the home. Our services provided at home include home services for families with children and family work for families with children.
