Väestöliitto, the Family Federation of Finland, is a family welfare organization working in the social and health sector. Our mission is to work for the well-being of families, youth and population, as well as for a healthy, safe, happy and balanced life. We strive for a more friendly society for families and children.

Väestöliitto was founded in 1941. Its members represent non-governmental non-profit organizations in the fields of family, health, children, women and youth.

Our goal is a society with a balanced population development and where families live a good life. The aim of our activities is to support families, parenthood and partner relationships. We believe that a healthy individual living in a healthy family creates the foundation for a well-balanced life now and in the future.

The Federation provides services, acts as an advocate and carries out research. Through its services and research it has acquired thorough expertise in issues related to the family, the population and sexual health. 

Our company, Terapia- ja kotipalvelut Oy (Therapy and Home Help Services Ltd) provides individual, couple/partner and sexual therapy services, training and home help services for families with children living in the Helsinki Metropolitan area.
