Peer Support

The Single Parents’ Association’s peer support program provides the opportunity to get to know other families in similar situations and share life’s struggles and joys. Through peer support you can find friends for your children and new ideas for hobbies.

In the peer support program you can also take the role of a peer group leader. You can also be a supervisor at events, camps and trips working together with other peer group leaders or with professional staff.

For all the activities, check out our calendar (toimintakalenteri)

Kid Care – Tenavatupa

KidCare is a service that gives single parents the chance to participate in civic action and spend time on their own interests. It is particularly important for families missing social networks. Currently the child care is provided during the activities of The Single Parent Association, organizational meetings, peer support groups, some lectures etc.

Arranging child care is a must for single parents wishing to be active outside the home. As KidCare is free of charge, all families, regardless of financial means, can benefit from this service.
