The City of Tornio provides services and grants financial aid to disabled persons according to its obligations under Finnish legislation on services for disabled persons. Services that fall under the municipality’s obligation to provide special care are intended for persons with serious disabilities.
Services and financial support measures aimed at all disabled persons are arranged on the basis of the funds allocated in the municipal budget. Statutory services and support measures for disabled persons may be applied for at any time. A decision on providing a service is always based on the disadvantage caused by the disability or long-term illness, not the income or wealth of the applicant.
The office is open on weekdays 8 am–3 pm. Home visits are also possible. It is recommended that you book an appointment beforehand.
