Committing to the activities
The issuer of the card commits to following the Kaikukortti national guideline. The cards are issued only to clients of the participating social welfare and healthcare units who moreover can’t, due to financial constraints, afford to use cultural services. The aim is that all the customer service employees of a participating unit tell all their clients within the focus group about Kaikukortti. Kaikukortti is not a discretionary benefit. The employee collects the background information received from the client into the local electronic Kaikukortti issuing form. Read more about the Kaikukortti national guideline.
An organization that is part of the Kaikukortti network should train its staff concerning the local Kaikukortti activities and the national network. Moreover, the organization should maintain internal guidelines with regard to the Kaikukortti activities.
An organization that is part of the Kaikukortti network must see to it that it always has a designated Kaikukortti contact person. Any changes in the contact personnel must be communicated to the person locally responsible for the Kaikukortti activities in the social welfare, healthcare and wellbeing sector.
Committing to the Kaikukortti national guideline is a precondition for being in the network and issuing the card. In the Kaikukortti pilots, the locally responsible persons make agreements with the individual Kaikukortti partners for the duration of the pilot.
If and when the activities continue after the pilot, new agreements with the participating local actors are not needed, but agreements do need to be made with any new partners. Committing to the Kaikukortti national guideline is still a precondition for being part of the network. In practice, the partners commit to the guideline by, for example, having their names listed in the local Kaikukortti brochure and on the local Kaikukortti website.
