A successful ESF immigrant support project is being proposed as a permanent service in Finland

An ESF-supported service point for immigrants in the Finnish town of Lahti has proved so successful that the municipal leaders are proposing to make it a permanent feature in the region.
The ALIPI project provides guidance and job training opportunities to immigrants, and consultation services to local authorities, associations and businesses on their integration, both in Lahti and the wider Päijät-Häme region.

The regional immigration policy steering group want the project, which started in 2008, extended to serve all municipalities in the region and form part of its immigration services administration activities.
