Child welfare

Protection of children is based on internationally recognized rights and Finnish law (Child Wellface Act). A child has the right to special protection, safe growth environment, and balanced development. Vantaa promotes the wellbeing of children and develops services to support education.

Social workers work for children's benefit

Social workers analyze the need for help by means of interviews, house calls, and expert reports.

  • supporting the family
  • guidance and counseling
  • support person and vacation activities
  • taking into care and placement outside the home.
