Social worker (Beistand)

The KESB (Child and Adult Protection Authority) can appoint a social worker for you. The social worker is there to support you and your family in whichever way you require help. This might be something different for every family. Perhaps the social worker will regularly visit you at home to help you keep things tidier and cleaner. Or you can decide on arrangements so that visits to your father or mother are as frequent as possible.

Either way, it is important that your social worker visits you regularly. This will enable you to talk about the situation. If you have a question, you can raise it yourself.

Do you feel that your social worker is not listening to you or does not understand you? Or do you have other questions about this topic? Then give us a call!
