Background to Övertorneå information services
The information services are run by the social enterprise project Matarengi Social Business on behalf of Övertorneå municipality. The background for the opening of an office in the municipality is a political motion to the city council. The motion states that societal development means that people themselves increasingly are to perform services using computer and telephone. Unfortunately, many people are unable to use this increasing degree of self-service due to lack of knowledge about computers, language difficulties and other everyday obstacles. The motion proposes that Övertorneå municipality should start a service office. The city council in 2016 has decided to approve the motion.
