Information and service counseling
The city's services for the disabled are meant for persons who, due to a disability or long-term illness, cannot find the services they need among basic municipal services. The aim of the services for the disabled is to ensure that disabled and chronically ill residents are given such targeted services that give them more equal preconditions for activities.
Vantaa arranges different kinds of services and financial assistance that will make it easier for the disabled to cope with life in and outside their homes.
Our services and assistance are based on assessment of need for services, the Act on Services for the Disabled, and the Act on the Intellectually Disabled. Services for the disabled are based on domestic guidelines.
A disabled person and an employee of Services for the Disabled will together compile a service plan for arranging the services. You apply for the services by filling in the application for services for the disabled.
