Help for young adult sans Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Help for young people of the legal year includes different benefits. It is both an independent help for 18 to 21 year olds as well as a continuation aid for over 21 segrades and aftercare.

As a rule, aid is only granted until the age of 21; in justified individual cases, it should be continued beyond that for a limited period of time.

The aid is provided when it is necessary because of the individual situation of the young person as a help for the development of personality and for the self-responsible way of life. Individual situations in which a benefit of the youth welfare according to Section 41 SGB VIII is required can result from a lack of competence to shape a self-responsible lifestyle. This can be caused by both individual impairments and social disadvantages.

Documents may be required. Any documents to be submitted depend on the requirements of the individual case.


For assistance to young adult guests, please contact the relevant body.
