Applying for follow-up care after the end of full-time care for foster children

If a foster care relationship ends, follow-up care or transitional care can take place for young adults.

Agreements on this are made in the aid planning.

When a foster child leaves a foster care relationship, this is referred to as a "leaving-care process". He is accompanied by a specialist from the foster children's service.

The goals of follow-up care are, for example, the independence of the foster child from the age of majority.

The specialists of the foster children's service accompany the foster children through reflective follow-up discussions, among other things.

The counselling should take place within a reasonable period of time after the end of the assistance in a form that is understandable, comprehensible and perceptible for the young adults.
