Setlementti in brief

The basis for settlement work is the belief in the empowering effect of communality. In the settlement work, which covers the entire spectrum of life, we realise the ideals of equality and communality in practice. We create opportunities for survival, becoming whole and refreshment for all from the youngest to the oldest. We develop community centre activity, supported housing and communal forms of housing.
