AYY’s services for associations

On this page you’ll find brief descriptions of services offered to associations, grouped into facilities, training and advice, IT services and communications. In addition to the services outlined below, there are also other services reserved for associations with special status.

The comprehensive Association Guide contains information on how to found and register an association, administration and finances, and community-related topics. The section about association funding and financial support is worth reading to check how associations are awarded operating grants, start-up grants and support from the TTE-Fund. In order to access the services, associations must belong to AYY’s register of associations. Instructions on how to apply to be included on the register of associations can be found in the Association Guide.

The services offered differ slightly depending on whether the association is on the first or second list. For more information, check the Association Guide.

For all matters relating to associations and association activities, please contact AYY’s Organisation Sector [LINKKI yhteystietoihin].
