Day activities

Experience goal-oriented activities and meaningful social connections with us.

Our day activities are tailored to individuals who are in search of fulfilling and goal-oriented pursuits yet may be unable to partake in regular work activities due to disabilities or illnesses.

We will collaboratively establish personalised objectives for your day activities, involving both you and your loved ones in the goal-setting process. These activities encompass a diverse range, including exercise, interactive discussions, enriching excursions, creative endeavours, culinary experiences, and sensory engagements like music appreciation and play.

We also employ communication methods that provide support and alternatives to verbal communication, ensuring inclusivity for everyone involved.

To enrol in our day activities program, please reach out to the social work services in your residential area.

For Helsinki residents with disabilities, day activities are offered at City of Helsinki's designated service points and through procured service providers.
