During recent decades the Western world has witnessed a turn of professional care and control from institutions to communities, and more recently to home-spaces what we term as 'home turn'. In Finland and in Sweden, where this study is located in, there is a strong trend towards this newest form of community service provision. The study concentrates on 'home turn' at the margins of welfare, namely on the services targeted at adults with complex needs, suffering from poor mental health, substance abuse problems and, occasionally, homelessness. Our special interest is to focus on the turn from a spatial and interactional points of view; how homes and nearby communities as places of service interactions matter. The project in funded by the Academy of Finland 2017-2021. It is done in collaboration with Cecilia Hansen Löfstrand, Suvi Holmberg, Doris Lydahl, Jenni-Mari Räsänen, Kirsi Günther, Suvi Raitakari, Johanna Ranta, Sirpa Saario and Chris Hall.
