Families with children in Helsinki will be offered family centre services in Kamppi, said the City of Helsinki in a press release.

The construction of the centre started this autumn and is due to be completed and opened to people in autumn 2021.

The family centre is the first of its kind in Helsinki city centre. The family centre will be completed at the heart of Helsinki at Malminkatu 3 F.

The family centre will provide children and young people below 17 and their families, as well as pregnant women with a wide range of maternity and child health clinic services; home services for families with children; social services; and speech therapy, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy services in one location.

In addition to this, employees from other services will also visit the family centre based on clients' needs. These services include adult social work or substance abuse and mental healthcare services for adults.

The Kamppi Family Centre will be the fourth family centre in Helsinki. Family centres have already been established in Itäkeskus, Vuosaari and Kallio.

“The Kamppi Family Centre is more than a maternity and child health clinic, with a wider range of services for families with children. The premises have been re-designed to be more versatile and attractive,” said Project Manager Anna-Kaisa Tukiala.

The Kamppi Family Centre will serve families currently relying on the services of Töölö, Laakso, and Viiskulma maternity and child health clinics.
