Adult social work

If you find yourself lacking knowledge, skills, or resources, we are here to provide assistance and support in navigating everyday life. It is important to reach out to us as soon as possible to prevent challenges from accumulating. Don't hesitate to contact us and let us help you overcome any obstacles you may be facing.

What is adult social work? 

We provide social work services to both young adults aged 16–29 and working-age individuals over the age of 30 living in Helsinki.  

Our services are designed to support in navigating challenges that arise in your daily life and during various crisis situations. Whether you need assistance with work-related issues, housing concerns, family dynamics, financial matters, or are going through a life crisis, we are here to help. 

When you reach out to us, we engage in open discussions to understand your specific situation. Together, we assess your needs for services and support, and create a client plan that addresses your unique circumstances.  

Our adult social work services are centred around conducting thorough service needs assessment and developing a client plan in collaboration with you, ensuring that you receive the tailored assistance you need. 

Throughout the duration of your engagement with our services, if deemed necessary, you will be assigned a designated responsible worker who will provide ongoing support and guidance. 

If you are between the ages of 16–29, you can find our contact information here

If you are over the age of 30, you can find our contact information here.
