Meeting places are important

We offer a local place to meet and discuss issues related to the community.

Making use of knowledge and ideas

This allows us to find informed and creative local solutions to the needs that exist.

The service point should be a meeting place

Where visitors can access different types of services, carry out everyday tasks and meet each other.

We see rural development as a whole

To provide a good service to the inhabitants of the villages in cooperation.

Welcome to the


Unbyn/Avan Servicepunkt economic association is an economic association with the drive to work for local services and development in the Unbyn/Avan area.

On May 1, 2021, UNEK put the service point into operation. A little more than a year later, on June 6, 2022, the service point was officially inaugurated with the usual speeches, ribbon cutting and cake celebration.

Unbyn/Avan are two villages with a mixture of old and new culture and a genuine village feel.

In Unbyn/Avan we are close to fine nature experiences despite being relatively close to both Luleå and Boden’s urban areas.

The villages also have an active community life for the benefit of both young and old.

Servicepunkten has a mission for the municipalities of Boden and Luleå to act as the extended arm of the citizens’ offices out in our villages, while at the same time we have a freedom to develop based on the needs initiated by villagers, employees and the board of Servicepunkten.

In other words, the service point can assist, initiate and run projects and ideas that promote positive development in villages.

In three years, the Service Point will have a broader range of socially useful services in cooperation with our two municipalities and also with other societal actors such as the Region, the County Administrative Board and others.

The service point will also be able to assist businesses and associations in developing their activities.

And last but not least, my hope is that the Service Point will be a natural meeting place for the inhabitants of the villages.
