IESAF (International English Speakers' Association of Finland) and Finland Forum are both voluntary organisations which share information with people who have interests in Finland, or are moving to the country. They each have large, active memberships, and each deals with topics similar to this site i.e. Moving to Finland, Housing, Jobs, Schooling etc. They both have a strong 'community spirit', and IESAF arranges loads of events as well. Both are completely free.
IESAF is a popular and fun non-profit organisation of international English speaking people living in Finland, with about 8,500 members from all over the globe. As well as organising loads of social events, IESAF's Facebook pages are great fora for questions, discussions, networking, and sharing of information.
