Community Connections

We build strong connections with communities and work closely with them to understand, identify and respond to the complex needs of young people and their families.

Young people can encounter significant barriers as they try tosettle in Finland. Alongside the challenges of growing up, they arefiguring out how things are done and adjusting to unfamiliarcultural, academic and social expectations.

Their sense of wellbeing and belonging can be considerably
diminished by factors such as racism and discrimination. These
barriers are often compounded and magnified by services and
systems that are ill-quipped to provide the specialist support

Despite these complex issues, we know that young people have
the enterprise, resilience and optimism to contribute to the continued prosperity of Finland. By engaging them as experts in their own lives and focusing on their strengths, they can be empowered to adapt and thrive communities in the East and West regions of Helsinki.
