The family counselling service is supposed to be a service for the whole Norwegian population, and especially to families needing guidance and advice on relationship problems and other difficulties. The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Bufdir) have given some guidelines about accessibility, stating that all Norwegians should have less than two hours travelling time to their nearest family counselling office. The analyses in this report shows that the service is quite accessible with car, but less so with public transport. The accessibility is lowest in the northern parts of the country. We find that an efficient measure would be to upgrade all sub-offices, giving them a fuller service and more extended opening hours.
