For associations

AYY’s services for associations

AYY offers a wide range of services and benefits for its associations.

On this page, you will find brief descriptions of services offered for associations, grouped into facilities, training sessions and advice, IT services and communications. In addition to the services outlined below, there are also other services available for subject associations.

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

The services available are slightly different depending on the type of the association.  For more information, please check the Association Guide.

With all matters concerning associations and association activities, please contact AYY’s Association Sector [LINKKI yhteystietoihin].
