Socialworker's Office

Fljótsdalshérað Social Services manage the social services in cooperation with the local government of Vopnafjörður.


About Social Services

The community of Vopnafjarðarhreppur has in recent years worked together with the community of Fljótsdalshérað in this matter, and the website has this to say:

 Service Objectives:

  •  Social services in the community shall support and improve quality of life and well-being of its residents.
  •  Services shall be flexible according to need.
  •  Implement services that encourage individuals' personal responsibility, respect their personal rights to make decisions and support self-help. 
  •  Increase emphasis on prevention so that the need for intervention or special remedies can be reduced.
  •  Contribute to shaping appropriate conditions for raising children and young adults, and offer parenting support to families.
  •  Individuals will be enabled, as long as possible, to live in their home with the assistance of home health services.

The Vopnafjörður community administers home help services here under its own control and responsibility.

The representative of the community meets with social service employees and watches over the interests of its clients in all matters.
