Having been through the process myself, I know how stressful it can be. I will treat your application like my own.

My appeal of the Helsinki City Council’s 2021 budget is presently in the Helsinki Administrative Court. At issue is the City of Helsinki’s decision to end the Municipal Child Supplement for children over the age of one.
