The Flemish Agency for Youth Welfare is in charge of executing youth care under the jurisdiction of the Flemish Minister of Welfare, Public Health and Family. The topic of after care is a priority for Flanders. In 2016, the Minister launched the policy document ‘Jeugdhulp 2.0’ to make the youth care stronger and more user-friendly. In this policy, young care leavers are a key target group and a specific action plan was developed to strengthen the support to young adults via instruments as after care plans and round tables and via collaboration with citizen initiatives and community initiatives.
The Flemish Agency for Youth Welfare is project coordinator and pilot partner of this project.
