Social services for children and families

Child and family social work may become necessary when problems arise in family situations. A family may contact a social worker to discuss their circumstances on their own initiative. A relation or someone else who is worried about a child’s wellbeing may also contact a social worker by making a notification/contact or a child welfare notification to social welfare services. Child and family social work provides help to the whole family with the child’s best interests at the core.

The Family Counselling Centre provides versatile expert help with challenges in family life. The purpose of family counselling is to support the wellbeing and functioning of families and contribute to the positive growth of children. Family Counselling Center is part of the Social services.
