How do I consider a family holiday in my work?
The need for family leave support can be very diverse. With the cooperation of different actors, support is easy and planning for the future becomes easier. On our website, you will find current news from the Family Leave to Work project and get to know national and regional networks.
Family holiday at the interface of employment and social services
Family leave is one of the important stages of life. It brings with it memorable moments, develops an individual’s self-awareness, and can even put the rest of life to life. At the same time, a break from working life and a return to the labor market and studies can arouse a wide range of feelings of insecurity in a family holiday. "Where can I get help with my career plans, reconciling family and work, or finding my own strengths?"
A person on family leave moves at the interface between employment and social services: outside the labor force, he or she is not a customer of employment or training services. In counseling and family centers, on the other hand, staff do not have the resources to help with the changes in working life that come with starting a family, and the information available is often fragmented. Thus, a family holidaymaker may feel lost in his or her situation when considering his or her options after family leave.
The Family Leave to Work project addresses this shortcoming and brings regional networks together: we dismantle cross-sectoral barriers and develop networked cooperation so that the family holiday worker has easy access to the support and information they need.
On our blog you will find up-to-date information on family-free, family-friendly working life and the progress of the project.
Tukeeko toimintanne maahan muuttaneiden vanhempien kotoutumista ja työllistymistä?
Perhevapaalta työelämään -valmennuksiin pääsee mukaan monella eri kielellä. Valmennuksen toteuttajilla on valmiudet suomen, ruotsin, ja englanninkieliseen valmenukseen, ja loput kielistä toteutetaan tulkkauksen avulla. Samalla myös ryhmävalmennuskerrat on mahdollista järjestää osallistujamäärän mukaan tulkattuina, jotta vanhemmat saavat vertaistukea muilta samassa tilanteessa olevilta omalla äidinkielellään. Valmennuksia on tarjolla suomeksi, ruotsiksi, pohjoissaameksi, englanniksi, venäjäksi, arabiaksi, somaliksi, kurdiksi (sorani tai kurmandzi), persiaksi ja mandariinikiinaksi. Alla olevasta napista pääsee ilmoittautumislomakkeelle.
