Helping to raise in full-time care means that your child lives in another family and is cared for there. Which foster family your child lives with and for how long depends, for example:

  • Age of the child
  • Your child's stage of development
  • Your child's bonds
  • Ways to improve your parenting conditions

The foster parents are selected by the Youth Welfare Office together with you.
Only suitable people can become foster parents and take in your child.
Relatives (e.g. grandparents) can also be foster parents.
The help for education in full-time care can be temporary or permanent. It is a type of benefit for educational aids. It may also apply to young adults.
