Community centres

The city’s community centres are closed until 28 February 2022

We will offer digital support and help with electronic services by appointment (45 minutes). Some community centres offer individual guidance by appointment, for example, in a sewing or weaving shop. You can make an appointment by calling the community centre.

  • Community centres are used to distribute masks to disadvantaged people.
  • Bags of donated food are distributed at Community Centre Hanna on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00–12:00 while stocks last.
  • In some community centres bread is distributed once a week. Please contact the community centre for specific distribution times. 
  • Excursions, events and all group activities are on pause.
  • The use of the premises in the evenings and at weekends is on pause.

    It is strongly recommended to wear a face mask at community centres. Kindly visit us only if you are healthy!


    You can book a computer (computer and help with e-services, max 45 min). You can book an appointment by calling the resident house.

    Please come to the appointment healthy and follow instructions given by the staff.

    Community centres act as living rooms and meeting facilities of the residents. The main objective is to bring well-being and prevent loneliness of the residents. You may participate in various groups and happenings.

    There are places for reading the newspaper or browsing the internet. They also act as teaching facilities, resident cafe and a general information centre for the area. Community centres are suitable as meeting and club premises for different groups. Social Instructors offer guidance in social services.

    There are computers and a multi-function printer in every resident house in Helsinki to enable usage of e-services. You can also get digital help to use your own device. 

    The services are free of charge for the customers. Remuneration may only be charged for renting the facilities, the materials and other costs related to providing the services.

    It is also possible to hold small parties at the community centres as they are equipped with coffee machines, kettles and a microwave oven, and some facilities also have a refrigerator. Other amenities vary from place to place.
