Bringing international protection and integration
into society. We started work supporting the
training and integration of immigrants already
20 years ago.
Training and integration
We assist those in distress and people who have fled from dangers in their home countries. We strive to ensure the decent and equitable treatment of everyone during the asylum process. Helsinki Deaconess Institute also carries out work to assist undocumented people.
We help people to integrate into their new country. Our aim is that each person who has received a residence permit will find his or her place in society. The training paths for immigrants in different parts of the country are provided by the Diakonia College Finland.
