Family placement

Placement involves entrusting a child or more than one child to a family for a limited time, for care and bringing up until such time as the child(ren)’s legal and social status is settled. This provides them with a substitution family and thus a healthy and balanced environment that will help them to adapt to the outside world. Temporary placement can last between one day and two years for temporary placement, longer in specific cases. The host family is then monitored to ensure proper supervision of the child and receives an allowance for these services as well as aids for the child(ren).
