The Central Union for Child Welfare

The Central Union for Child Welfare, founded in 1937, is a central organisation that works to promote child welfare and ensure that children’s rights are implemented in full. The Central Union’s members include NGOs as well as municipalities and wellbeing services counties.

In the Central Union for Child Welfare we:

  • advocate for a more child-friendly society through statements, communications and campaigns,
  • develop the skills of professionals who work with children by providing them with training, guides and information,
  • coordinate projects and initiatives in Finland, such as sharing information about children’s rights,
  • work closely with our member organisations and stakeholders,
  • and publish the magazine Lapsen Maailma (in Finnish).

The goals and tasks of the union can be found in more detail in our strategy.
