Family Services

Folkwang Family Services helps and advises on all questions surrounding the topic of family. It is the central contact for all members of the university who have to reconcile their studies and/or a job with family responsibilities. We understand family not only as the traditional model father/mother/child(ren), but as in an extended sense that includes all models in which responsibility for others is assumed: single parents, same-sex partnerships, and the caring for friends and relatives.

You are welcome to contact us with all family-related matters. Our expertise includes advice in the following areas, among others:

  • Parental allowance, parental leave and returning to work
  • Childcare
  • Grants for students with children
  • Caring for relatives

We are happy to support you in your search for individual solutions to your problems in a personal and confidential consultation.
