Itäkatu Family Centre – Helsinki’s family services are developing

The Itäkatu Family Centre in Itäkeskus, Helsinki, has started its operations at Tallinnanaukio 1. The Family Centre’s location is easily accessible for families with children moving around with prams or pushchairs: metro and bus stops are right next to the building.

The first family centre in Helsinki brings together services for children and families under one roof, ranging from preventative services to treatment services. This ensures comprehensive support to families, in accordance with their needs.

In addition to this, employees from other service centres visit the Family Centre, when the clients require their services, which can include, e.g. adult social work or substance abuse and mental health care services for adults.

Services offered at home include home services, family work and social care work for families with children.

From the Family Centre, the clients receive the necessary

  • maternity and child health clinic services
  • maternity and child health clinic psychologist services
  • preventative services of oral health for children and young people
  • children's speech therapy
  • physiotherapy and occupational therapy
  • upbringing and family guidance services
  • child welfare services  
  • services for the disabled
  • home service for families with children
  • social care services for families with children.
