Assistance services for families

Assistance services for families (CPAS etc)
If you have a problem relating to work, housing or finances, or you are suffering from mental health issues, family problems, isolation or social marginalisation, you can turn to one of several organisations dedicated to helping and supporting individuals and families experiencing difficulties or in a precarious situation.

Need some help around the house? Why not use service vouchers?

Service vouchers (FR/NL) allow private individuals to hire housekeeping services at affordable prices.

An intergenerational approach to housing

The association 1Toit2âges offers intergenerational housing solutions by matching older people and families with students looking for accommodation.
This approach offers benefits to both parties. The householders or families get some help around the house, companionship and some extra income, while students can find affordable and friendly accommodation.
