Pakila work centre provides rehabilitative employment services for Helsinki residents in different life situations. The strong production activities of the work centre allow clients to engage in diverse and meaningful work activities under the guidance of professionals. The objective of the activities is to develop individuals’ preparedness for working life, life management skills and professional skills and improve their prospects to find employment through the open job market.

The work centre mainly recycles, renovates, restores and manufactures furniture for the City’s units. The activities are divided into seven sections: the metalwork and woodwork sections, the paint shop, the upholstery shop, the furniture warehouse, the kitchen and cleaning, and the office. Depending on the situation, rehabilitative work activities or a work tryout can be arranged in any of the sections. The furniture store of Pakila Work Centre sells furniture recycled by the City and products manufactured by the different sections of Pakila Work Centre.
