The Department of Welfare runs six municipal service centres in Reykjavík. The centres offer services and advise to individuals and families in all kinds of matters regarding welfare, schools, disabled people, senior citizens, home services etc.
The aim of the Municipal Service Centres is, on the one hand, to provide information and advice about social entitlements and, on the other hand, to provide support in cases of social or personal problems.
The consultants at the service centres provide information about entitlements/services, consultation and support. Consultants may also provide information about other service options, as well as directing people to the resources that are suitable for each case.
Social advisory services include consultation for cases of:
- Housing problems
- Financial problems
- Senior citizens
- Immigration issues
- Issues regarding children and youngsters
- Family problems
- Substance abuse
