Help for education

The education and care for a child is primarily taken care of by the parents. In some circumstances, however, additional state aid may be necessary for education.

The assistance is given to the parents, but it is based on the interests of the child or the young person. This means that the child or young person must be involved in the decisions concerning them. Among other things, we offer

  • Educational counselling,
  • social group work,
  • Educational assistance,
  • Care assistants,
  • social-educational family support,
  • Education in a day group,
  • Full-time care,
  • home education and other assisted living forms, or
  • intensive individual social-educational support.

In addition, the Youth Office decides on the granting of integration assistance and assistance for young adult and common forms of housing for mothers/fathers and children.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district and the county-free city. They provide assistance through the Youth Office. You can also find an overview on the websites of the Association of Youth Offices of the Länder of Lower Saxony and Bremen (AGJÄ).

Which documents are required?

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.

What are the fees?

The youth welfare agency is funding for education. This provides the services itself or assumes the costs agreed with the institutions. The use of the costs incurred will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the appropriate body.

Applications / forms

For help with education, please submit applications to the Youth Office of your county or your county-free city.
