Continuation of placement / assistance for young adults as foster children, support

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If it is important for their development, young adults can also receive educational support after their 18th birthday and be placed in full-time care.

The goals of full-time foster care are not achieved in the short term. Help can be continued when a foster child turns 18. This is to ensure that progress made in the development of the young adult is not jeopardized. Young adults receive help as long as their personal development does not allow them to lead a self-determined, independent and autonomous lifestyle.

If help is continued, the previous offer will be continued.

The continuation of assistance must be applied for before the 18th birthday. It can be granted up to the age of 21. In exceptional cases, it can also be granted beyond this age.

The application for continued assistance is made by the young people or young adults themselves.

The foster children's service or the local youth welfare office can advise them on this.
