Valo-Valmennusyhdistys is a national association improving access to learning, employment, wellbeing and participation in the society. Valo-Valmennusyhdistys currently works in Tampere, Sastamala, Turku, Rauma, Pori and Helsinki.
Our mission is to support, guide and train some of the most vulnerable members of the society to reach good, ordinary life, where their goals in areas of health and wellbeing, employment, housing and family/friends have been achieved.
We continuously evaluate and develop our practices, using applied research as a basis. We develop and distribute new ways of working that support people in vulnerable groups.
Valo-Valmennusyhdistys was founded by four regional associations, working towards building inclusion in society: Silta-Valmennusyhdistys, Rauman Seudun Katulähetys, Porin Sininauha (Pori) and Sastamalan mielenterveysseura. Our board of directors consists of representatives from these organisations.
