Functions of social and family assistance

The functions of social and family assistance include accompaniment, supervision, guidance and assistance. They fall within the overall framework of social and family-related work, and their aim is to contribute to the physical, mental and social well-being of users.

People who carry out functions of social and family assistance outside their own homes or those of close relatives are incorporated in mission teams, where they are supervised by people who have undergone professional training in the fields of medicine, the health professions, home economics, human sciences, education, or social work.

Details of the training are set out in the Grand-Ducal Regulation of 21 May 1999 instituting training for the functions of social and family assistance.

Training is dispensed while the trainees are employed; it is open to adults exercising functions of social and family assistance in institutions and bodies offering social and family services.
