Service Description

The upbringing and care of a child is primarily the responsibility of the parents. However, additional help from the state may sometimes be necessary in raising a child.

The legal guardian is entitled to educational assistance when raising a child or young person if the child or young person's welfare cannot be guaranteed and the assistance is suitable and necessary for their development. The types of educational assistance offered include educational counseling, social group work, educational assistance, care assistants, socio-educational family assistance, education in a day group, full-time care, home education and other forms of supervised living or intensive socio-educational individual care. The type of assistance selected depends on the educational needs of the individual case. The use of this assistance does not involve any state intervention in parental responsibility. The assistance serves to support parents in carrying out their parenting duties and is intended to improve the parenting conditions in the family.

Parenting support is a jointly organized, time- and goal-oriented process. As a basis for the organization of the help, the specialists draw up a help plan together with the legal guardian and the child or young person. This contains statements about needs, the type of help to be provided and the necessary services. The specialists regularly check whether the type of help provided is still suitable and necessary.
