Kontula Service Centre is an open meeting place, and its activities support you to live at home and promote your well-being. The centre is just the place for you if you are looking for a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and a place to spend time. Here you can exercise, participate in a handicraft workshop, enjoy the delicacies of our restaurant or read the daily newspaper. You can choose to partake in group activities or find something to do independently. You can also turn to us for support in everyday issues.

We employ social counsellors, cultural instructors, a sports instructor and a physiotherapist.

We have a restaurant on our premises. You can find the link to the restaurant's menu at the end of this page.

We also have customer computers and a printer for independent use. There is a printing fee.

The service centre's activities are intended for pensioners and the unemployed. Unless stated otherwise, the services provided at the centre are free. To access them, you need a service centre card that you can obtain from the service centre's information desk free of charge.
