"Every child is unique": ASB care for children and young people is based on this motto. Here children and young people are regarded as equals, whose rights are protected and personalities are promoted.
Children and youngsters can discover the world through play in ASB crèches, kindergartens,children's day centres and afterschool centres. They will receive individual support from teachers who encourage personal responsibility, social group behaviour, as well as mental, musical and motor skills.
Children with and without disabilities learn together in a range of integrated children's day care facilities.
ASB offers children's homes and group accommodation facilities as an alternative for children and young people who are no longer able to live with their families. Teachers and social workers accompany young people on their journey into adulthood. They foster the development of youngsters with targeted educational or therapeutic approaches and enable the children and young people to lead a happy everyday life in familiar surroundings.
The ASB out-patient family assistance service offers advice and support to families in difficult domestic situations. There is also support for single parents, as well as to mother-and-child-health-clinics.
The ASB family centres, multi-generation houses and support centres are also first ports of call for parents and children, where they have access to information, advice and assistance.
ASB is also involved in cooperation projects with schools for children and young people. School health services, school social work services and homework centres both support and challenge children and young people. There are also many more provisions in place such as projects within all-day schools or integrated support centres where teachers and pupils can meet and discuss issues.
The Youth Samaritan Workers organises attractive holiday and recreational activities, seminars, contests and national and international gatherings for children and young people.
This offers children and young people the opportunity to get involved and have fun together. In addition, international youth camps provided an exciting insight into the lifestyle and culture of other nations.
