Apply for help for young adults


The "Assistance for Young Adults" includes various benefits that are suitable for young adults. The aid is intended to help people between the ages of 18 and 21 to lead a life of personal responsibility and self-determination. When applying, it is checked which aids are useful in individual cases.

If the age of 21 has been reached, there may be a continuation assistance in justified individual cases.

The Youth Welfare Office offers different, individual support. The support is based on:

  • Personal Goals
  • Wish
  • Abilities
  • Resources

Resources can be: the environment, friends and family.

Pedagogical specialists accompany people in coping with everyday problems and help them to develop a perspective. It does not matter whether the person lives with their parents, in their own apartment or in a group home.

The following forms are available:

  • Educational assistance – a person provides support in everyday life.
  • Intensive socio-pedagogical one-to-one support in order to cope with personal crises and solve problems more and more on one's own.
  • Home education – care in an institution outside the parental home
  • Assisted living - the way to an independent life in your own 4 walls
  • Integration assistance for young adults with a (threatening) 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 assistance for young adults themselves. Previously, the persons entitled to custody (parents or guardians) were entitled to claim.

  • They are between 18 and 21 years old. In justified individual cases, assistance may also be granted up to the age of 27 if the assistance has already been started.
  • Due to your personal development, you cannot lead a self-determined, self-reliant and independent life.
  • Help is suitable and necessary. This is checked by the Youth Welfare Office.  
  • In the event of a (threatening) mental disability, you will need a specialist opinion if you would like to apply for integration assistance for young adults. The Youth Welfare Office can obtain this with your consent.
  • Identity card
