  • It is important that any problems with housing are solved as early on as possible.  The housing consultant can review your situation comprehensively, for example by evaluating problems with rent and other housing related questions. When necessary, the housing consultant can, by your permission, contact the Social Services or Kela, for example. The aim is that your situation is improved and that housing can continue as normal. The housing consultants are committed to professional secrecy.
