Saarbrucken – The Saarland state government decided on Tuesday financial aid for social service companies. Carriers of workshops for people with disabilities, daycare centers, outpatient services or integration aids at daycare centers and schools are to be protected against the effects of the corona pandemic, as the Ministry of Social Affairs said. There are already considerable financial losses because benefits due to the risk of infection can no longer be used or facilities are closed, said Minister of Social Affairs Monika Bachmann (CDU).
The support provides for grants up to the full amount of the losses. According to the ministry, the prerequisite is that the social service provider can credibly demonstrate that even taking into account the options available to him, this is the only way to avoid insolvency that is not the fault of his own. “Our goal is to avert insolvencies from social service providers through no fault of our own,” explained Bachmann.
