National Board of Health and Welfare and Ombudsman for Children in Sweden launch website about social services

On instructions from the Government, the National Board of Health and Welfare and the Ombudsman for Children in Sweden have developed a national website containing information tailored to children and young people about social services and what social services can offer children and young people in need of support and protection.

The Ombudsman for Children in Sweden has been responsible for involving children and young people in the implementation of the assignment. On Tuesday 16 February 2016, Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality Åsa Regnér attended the first showing of the webbsite.

"I am pleased to launch the new website today. Children can find information on the site about how to get help and support from social services. This is an important platform for vulnerable children," says Ms Regnér.
