General full-time care for foster children, support

Foster carers are entitled to support and advice, as their tasks and the demands placed on them differ significantly from those of a family without a youth welfare mandate. As private individuals, they perform a public task within the framework of educational assistance or integration assistance. They are therefore obliged to cooperate within the framework of assistance planning and the care agreement concluded between them and the foster care service.

In order to successfully fulfill the requirements of a foster carer in the long term, they need professional support from specialists with proven expertise in the field of foster care. Continuous specialist support and advice for foster care relationships helps to stabilize them in the long term and is therefore an important contribution to ensuring the best interests of the child.

As a foster carer, you contact the Foster Children's Service.

The Foster Children's Service can advise you.
