Together with other partners, the district of Osnabrück is carrying out a pilot project from September 2017 to September 2021. This project aims to strengthen prevention in family assistance programmes. It is aimed at families in need of individual assistance due to family-related challenges. Tailored supervision is required for these families in order to ensure that their children and adolescents can grow up successfully. Particularly preventive assistance programmes can help support parents at an early stage so that they can better respond to the demands of parenting.
