"Early support for children, young people and families - Support for those who need it most - Correctly dimensioned staff"

I am a married mother of three, licensed social worker, master of Social Political Science and master of Theology. I stand in the welfare area election because I want to highlight social care alongside health care as an important factor for the well-being and security of the people of Ostrobothnia. I have 25 years of experience in the social work area as a social worker and head of social work. I now work as a senior lecturer and educational leader in the social education at a polytechnic.

All children who need child protection should have the right to a social worker who has time with them. Children, young people and adults with severe mental illness should receive multi-professional support at the right time.
