taking into care of children and adolescents

You feel uncomfortable in your family, you are threatened by neglect or you are acutely endangered in a crisis situation? You observe the neglect of a child or a young person in your environment? The Youth Welfare Office in the social centers helps to find the best possible solution for the person concerned.

If a child is in danger in his or her current home or is living in neglect, the child can be taken into the care of the youth welfare office. The aim is to protect the child and to clarify the conflict or crisis situation.


If the welfare of the child or adolescent is endangered at the discretion of the Youth Welfare Office or at its own discretion, the preconditions for taking the child into custody are met.
