There are six family support centres in Tampere. They provide services in the fields of non-institutional care and support measures, family therapy and children's ward care.
Non-institutional care provided by the family support centres can be, for example, short-term non-institutional placement as well as family and non-institutional work.
In family therapy, a family learns how to best utilise resources needed to cope with daily life.
Therapy is proposed to parents with a drug-abusing child, or to pregnant women having drug, intoxicant or mental health problems.
Therapy is also proposed if the above mentioned are feeling tired, depressed and/or have a need for special guidance.
A child or adolescent may be admitted into the ward when his/her growth and development is in danger.
The decision on ward care is made by the family’s social welfare worker. It can be based on reasons of living conditions at home, the child’s behaviour and/or when it is no longer possible to assist the child while still living at home.
