Live in brief

Revolutionary services. Bold new initiatives.

Live Foundation

Live Foundation aims to promote and support people’s ability to become and remain a fully-fledged member of Finnish society. We facilitate employment by offering our customers education, training, rehabilitation and coaching.

The Live Foundation, previously known as Invalidisäätiö, was established in 1940 to provide treatment, rehabilitation and vocational training to those injured in the Winter War. For nearly eight decades, we have systematically developed our operations to meet the changing needs of society. In August 2018, we launched the Live service brand under which we have compiled all of our services for people and corporations.

Live Vocational College, the largest special education institution in the Helsinki Metropolitan area, is our most important unit. It also acts as the national competence unit for special education. The Live Vocational College is an operation for the public good and mostly funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture. In March 2020, the college opened a new campus in Puustellinmäki in Espoo’s Leppävaara.

Live produces rehabilitation, employment and coaching services designed to help our customers find employment, remain in working life and promote their physical and psychological resources for work. Live works in close cooperation with Finnish businesses, municipalities, cities and authorities. We also produce high-quality, competitive outsourcing services for households and businesses in the Helsinki Metropolitan area.

We have a strong network with various socially responsible operators who are connected by the desire to contribute to social betterment. As a non-profit organisation, our activities are focused on solving social challenges and building the prerequisites for a good life in line with our strategy that is summarised in the phrase ‘We facilitate employment’.
