Children and adults who are in need of assistance, for example because of
- somatic (bodily) or mental illness
- injury or disorder
- drug problem
- social problems, or
may be entitled to a personal support contact. All municipalities are obliged to have a support contact scheme. In collaboration with you, the municipality will decide whether you can be granted a support contact.
It is free to be assigned a support contact, but you must expect to have to cover your own expenses while you are with your support contact for admission to swimming pools, cinema tickets, food, etc.
Support contacts can be assigned individually, in groups or in collaboration with a voluntary organisation.
