Forms of sports support for low-income children and young people

Everyone faces different financial challenges along the way. However, exercising is important. We have put together a few entities that can help.

TU11 support

Through the taekwondo athletes' campaign, we have collected money to support needy enthusiasts during a difficult time and also after. There have been a lot of support donations, and we can once again be grateful and proud of the unwavering support of our enthusiasts and those close to us.

The grant application is open to all enthusiasts under the age of 16.

Make an application using the form found at the link below. Write the reasons on a general level. Do not put sensitive information in the application, and not, for example, your income in numbers. We ask for clarifications as needed. The recipients of the support are determined primarily according to the wishes of the supporters. If there are no wishes, we will put the applicants in order based on the applications. The receipt of support will be notified by e-mail.

Temporary payment difficulties

In case of temporary payment difficulties, please contact the director of operations Pauli to Raivio. The club can, for a justified reason, grant payment time or make its own payment program. Be on the move as early as possible, preferably before the start of the new billing period.

Income support customers

If the family has Kela's decision on income support, the municipalities can grant discretionary support for hobbies.


The Social and Health Agency of the City of Helsinki can grant income support for the hobby costs of children from low-income families. The decision is made on an individual basis. This means that the decision is based on what the family's income and expenses and other life situation are like. Support can be applied for children under the age of 18. Support can be granted to families who have been granted basic income support from Kela. The application is made in the parents' name and the child's name is included in the application. You can also apply for support for equipment. The city of Helsinki has not defined a fixed amount that can be granted for a child's hobby expenses per month/year. You can get more information about income support from the City of Helsinki's social support telephone service in Finnish at tel. 09 3105 6257


Supplemental income support can be granted for children's hobby expenses based on a long-term income support customership. A customer family receiving long-term basic income support can be granted supplementary income support for one guided hobby/child/year as follows: 
– for 0-3 year olds €100/year.
– for 4–5-year-olds €200/year.
– for 6–11-year-olds €400/year. – €500/year for 12–17-year-olds. 
- In addition, for children's trips and camps (not camp schools and school trips) a maximum of €150/child/year More information on income support can be found on the city of Espoo's website at and supplementary income support


Discretionary support for one reasonably priced hobby can be granted for children's hobby expenses and camps of families that have received a KELA income support decision.
