Interaction with children in public care

  • Generelt om tjenesten


    When a child is in foster care or in an institution, the child and their parents have the right to spend time with one another, unless otherwise specified. Even though the parents are unable to care for their child, it can be valuable for the child to have contact with their biological family. The child welfare services may decide that persons other than the parents will also have the right to have social contact with the child. 

    Target group

    Parents and in special cases also grandparents, siblings, uncles/aunts or close friends of the child.


    What is best for the child?


    See in particular Section 4-19 Right of access of the Child Welfare Act.
