Adult social work for over 30-year-olds

If you encounter challenges in your everyday life or find yourself in a crisis situation, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our services are specifically designed for Helsinki residents aged 30 and above.

Our team of adult social work professionals is available to assist you when you face difficulties in your daily life or encounter various crises. We aim to understand your situation by conducting an assessment together with you, and provide the necessary assistance, support, guidance and advice.

You may need advice or support, for example in matters pertaining to your livelihood and finances, functional capacity, well-being or relationships.

Our services are tailored to your specific needs and are based on a comprehensive assessment and client plan prepared in collaboration with you. If needed, you will be assigned a designated responsible worker to support you throughout the duration of our services.

If you already have a designated responsible worker, you can contact them either through Maisa or during their telephone hours.

For those without a designated responsible worker, we provide phone services at the social work service point in your residential area Mon-Fri 8.15-16.00. These same telephone numbers also cater to authorities and other cooperation partners.

We also provide services face-to-face at the social work service point in your residential area without an appointment Mon-Fri 10.00-14.00. Please note that you may have to wait for your turn depending on the number of visitors.

Swedish-speaking adults over 30 years of age can access adult social work services at the Malmi service point.

How can I find my service point?

If you are a new client and do not have a designated social worker, you can either call or visit your service point.

Note! The same telephone numbers also cater to authorities and other cooperation partners.

I have misplaced the contact information of my designated worker. Where can I find it? 

If you have visited us before, you may have been assigned a designated social worker. In this case, your designated social worker will have given you their contact information and told you when and how to best reach them.  

If you have misplaced the contact information of your designated worker, check it in the drop-down menu under your service point. 

If you cannot find their contact information, you can always call social counselling.
