Do you want to act as a support family or person for a child / young person?

Sometimes there are situations in families with children where parental resources decrease. Relatives may live far away and there is not enough support for the child in the family’s immediate circle. Support relationships are a service organized by Eksote in accordance with the Social Welfare Act, which supports the child’s or young person’s opportunities for new stimuli and new relationships that support growth and development. At the same time, supporting the parent’s resilience by giving them time to increase their own resources.
Different support families and support people are needed so that each child can find an adult who exactly meets his or her needs. Those who want to be a support person or a support family are interviewed and trained in the activity.
Training of volunteers in Lappeenranta on Tuesday 22.9. and 29.9. 17-20.
