Our vision is to create a cohesive society and sustainable wellbeing

We have selected five strategic goals to achieve our vision.

Reaching these goals requires long-term work to improve people’s everyday lives and our modern welfare society, in line with the Government Programme.

Our five strategic goals are:

  • active inclusion of people;
  • integrated services and benefits;
  • safe and healthy living and working environments;
  • financial sustainability; and
  • wellbeing amidst the ongoing transformation of work.

  • non-discrimination and a sense of community; and
  • personalized promotion of health and wellbeing.

  • comprehensive social security that encourages individuals in all circumstances; and

  • a safety net and a sense of security; and
  • healthy, community-based premises.
Financial sustainability means:
