Practices for students' social credit have changed in Helsinki

25.03.2014

The City of Helsinki Department of Social Services and Health Care has revised its practices regarding the application of social credit when processing students' social assistance. In the future, students are informed about the possibility of social credit but they must also be aware of their rights for social assistance and they must have the opportunity to choose the best form of aid for themselves. Social credit will no longer be taken into account when processing social assistance if a student has not actually received the credit.
