Friendship Circle Groups at Service Centres

If you would like some relief from loneliness and are interested in making new friends, you can join a Friendship Circle Group.

The groups meet a total of 12 times over a three-month period. The content of the group meetings is planned according to what interests the participants.

Before partaking in the group activities, you will be asked to meet with the instructor one-on-one. At this meeting, you can discuss whether the group could help you with and improve your current life situation. The groups are led by group instructors trained by the Finnish Association for the Welfare of Older People.

The service is free of charge.

This service is available at Kamppi, Koskela, Pohjois-Haaga, Syystie and Töölö Service Centres.


This service is intended for residents of Helsinki who are retired.
Those participating in the activities must have a valid Service Centre Card.
