Temporary full-time care for foster children, accompaniment

Caregivers are entitled to support and counselling, because their tasks and the demands placed on them differ significantly from those of a family without a youth welfare mission. As private individuals, they carry out a public mission in the context of educational assistance or integration assistance. In doing so, they commit themselves to cooperation within the framework of assistance planning and the care agreement concluded between them and the foster child service.

In order to successfully and long-term meet the requirements for a foster carer, they need professional support from specialists with proven expertise in foster child care. Continuous, subject-specific support and advice for foster care relationships helps to stabilise them in the long term and is thus an important contribution to ensuring the child's well-being.
