Help for the young

Help services for the young
Official services for the young provide help to anyone – children, youths, parents or family – who feels the need to talk and those facing special problems. These include adoption assistance, support requests, assistance in the community, protection services and support after a court order.

On the website of the Common Community Commission you can find the protection services for young people in Brussels (FR/NL).
