NuoriSO- Towards research-based inclusion in social work for young adults 

NuoriSO- research project  provides information on social work for young adults from the perspective of promoting inclusion. The project will investigate how social work services for young adults are organised in municipalities and welfare regions and how inclusion is promoted.
A key focus of the research is how services and working practices in social work respond to the service needs of young adults and promote their inclusion.
