Suomen Icehearts ry

What is it about?

The Suomen Icehearts ry [Finnish Icehearts Association] is an early intervention model that aims to prevent the exclusion of children and young people by using team sports. Icehearts provides long-term and professional growth support to children and families in need of support. A team of about 25 children will be together for 12 years and the team will be led by a coach with professional qualifications to lead the team. Icehearts currently operates in Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo, Kerava, Lahti, Riihimäki, Hämeenlinna, Tampere, Ulvila, Pori, Turku, Seinäjoki and Lappeenranta.

Together with Blic, the Suomen Icehearts ry prepared new updated crisis communication guidelines for the organization in case of possible crisis situations. In addition, Blic coached the organization’s management in dealing with crisis situations through separate simulation exercises.
