The Welfare's Department guiding lights are Respect, Participation and Welfare.
The Welfare Department emphasizes supporting people to help themselves in the spirit of respect and equality so that they can live their lives with dignity. People have a right to social support in times of need, based on simple, clear and transparent rules. Interaction and cooperation between residents and staff are characterized by mutual respect and trust.
The Welfare Department emphasizes helping people participate in society with the aim of improving the quality of their lives and increasing their wellbeing. The residents are encouraged to participate in definition, organization and policy-making concerning the services, on their own terms, with the mutual aim of benefitting society.
The Welfare Department takes a leading role in discussion about matters of welfare and the quality of life of the citizens and works resolutely against poverty. This involves being alert to the needs of the residents. The social capital of the city needs to be enhanced to promote welfare on the basis of mutual help, cooperation and solidarity. The Welfare Department strives to strengthen families and individuals through instruction, support, follow-up and rehabilitation when appropriate.
