Apply for parental assistance or care assistants

Service Description

A parenting support worker or care assistant can help a child or young person in everyday life, in dealing with their parents and with social problems.
Possible forms of help are

  • Talking about problems, fears and behavior
  • Help in coming to terms with stressful experiences
  • Support in solving problems with family, friends, teachers or other people
  • Support with visits to the authorities
  • There is further help for older young people: Support with finding work and accommodation
  • Help with separation from parents
  • Help with becoming independent

Note: In contrast to "socio-educational family support", a parenting support worker concentrates their help largely on the child or young person in question. If possible, he involves the social environment.
This is a type of educational support service. It can also apply to young adults.
