Multi-lingual information and guidance services of the City of Tampere take place at Culture House Laikku (Keskustori 4, 3rd floor). Customers are served in 16 different languages by advisors, all of whom speak also Finnish.

The services are available for all immigrants who wish to seek information and advice in their own language in different topics of everyday life. At the Info Centre, the customer can ask anything about living, working and studying in Tampere. The advisors can help in untangling Finnish documents or correspondence, filling in different forms and applications, or making appointments by phone for example for a doctor. Any question or topic is welcome!

Upon request, the advisor may join customers for separate visits to run necessary errands in town. These appointments are agreed on with the advisor.
