KISÄLLI-HARJULANMÄKI has two main activities: it has a nursing home called “Harjulanmäki” for mentally disabled people and a workshop called “Kisälli” which provides art and work therapy for disabled people.
Volunteer’s role, tasks and requirements: The volunteers help disabled people in their daily activities at the Kisälli arts&crafts workshop and at the Harjulanmäki home. The work includes both artistic work and practical personal assisting (for example with eating and daily hygiene). The volunteering periods mainly consist of daytime working at Kisälli but occasionally there are evening and weekend work shifts, too. The volunteers need to have interest in creative arts&crafts work as well as motivation to work with people with special needs.
Accommodation: The volunteers live in an apartment.
