Apply for help for young adults

Service Description

Assistance for young adults" includes various services that are suitable for young adults. The assistance is intended to help people between the ages of 18 and 21 to lead a self-determined and independent life. When an application is made, it is checked which help is appropriate in each individual case.

Once a person has reached the age of 21, continued help may be available in justified individual cases.

The Youth Welfare Office offers various individual forms of support. The support is based on

  • Personal goals
  • wishes
  • abilities
  • Resources

Resources can be: the environment, friends and family.

Educational specialists support people in overcoming everyday problems and help them to develop a perspective. It does not matter whether the person lives with their parents, in their own home or in a residential group.

The following forms exist:

  • Parental assistance - one person provides support in everyday life.
  • Intensive one-to-one socio-educational support to help them overcome most personal crises and increasingly solve problems themselves.
  • Home education - care in a facility outside the parental home
  • Assisted living - the path to an independent life within your own four walls
  • Integration assistance for young adults with an (impending) mental disability.

Young people who have already received help from the youth welfare office before they reach the age of majority and would like to continue receiving this help must apply for help for young adults themselves. Previously, the legal guardians (parents or guardians) were entitled to claim.
