Non-institutional social work is intended for a child, the child’s parents or other guardians in situations when the child’s right to a safe and inspirational growth environment, for balanced and versatile development and for special protection is not fulfilled, or there is reason to suspect that this right is not being fulfilled.

A social worker explores alternative solutions together with the customer, organises support activities and services, and evaluates the realisation and effectiveness of alternative solutions.
