FINLAND: One Stop Guidance Centres

ICCDPP Promising Practices_Finland – OSGC_13_11

Established on a pilot basis in 2010, these centres now exist in 30 regions in Finland. Their aim is to provide basic support to youth (aged under 30 years) going through life transitions. The centres have institutional representation from municipal, education, social and health authorities so that young people can find the services or combination of services they need in one physical location. The centre staff provide face to face complementary  support to the national telephone helpline.
