  • Public service

The purpose of activity centres is to promote and support the informal carers and the care receivers and their well-being.

Activity Centres of informal care hold both open and closed groups. Peer support groups are available to male carers and former carers, for example. In addition, various exercise groups are organised. Coaching courses are offered to new carers. Please visit the Internet pages of the Activity Centres for more details.

Once a week, the Activity Centres of informal care set up a café, where topical matters are discussed. You can find the schedule and the programme from the event calendar.

Participation in the activities of the centre is free of charge. Small fee may be charged for excursions, meals and craft materials.

To whom and on what terms

Activity Centres of informal care are open to all families taking care of their loved one.

The service is only for citizens of Helsinki.
