The Story of International House Rauma

The International House Rauma service point came up for the first time in the discussion already at the end of 2021, when a group of cooperation parties gathered to consider what could be done in the city to promote work-related immigration, employment of international students and the attraction and retention power of the area. The idea of ​​a one-stop service model was implemented when the regional city project started in early 2022.

A wide collaboration group participated in the development of the service model, including e.g. Rauma Chamber of Commerce, Te-office, EURES, educational institutions and companies in the area, as well as people with a foreign background in the area. The cooperation group met every three months to review the progress of the project and give guidelines for the next steps.

The development of the service point took about 1.5 years. During that time, the existing services in the area were mapped and information was collected in one place. The operating concept of International House is to offer advice and guidance to customers on a one-stop basis.

The customers are both personal and business customers, and guidance and advice are given, e.g. for finding hobbies and work. The guidance offered to companies is mostly related to the hiring of labor force from abroad.

Together in a Multicultural South-Satakunta

The City of Rauma is implementing the Together in Multicultural South-Satakunta project together with Eura, Eurajoki, Huittinen and Säkylä municipalities. The project will continue until 2026.

The aim of the project is to strengthen and clarify the integration work in the South Satakunta region and to support the municipalities in the region in the preparation of the overall reform of the Integration Act, which will enter into force at the beginning of 2025, and the obligations it will bring.

The measures are aimed both at third-country nationals living in the region, i.e. citizens of the European Union and non-Schengen countries, and at the authorities and organisations working around the theme.

A coherent model of multilingual social orientation and training of trainers suitable for the region will be identified and prepared during the project. In addition, a meeting place for people from foreign and native backgrounds will be planned, with facilities where different operators can meet on a regular basis.
