Um Vernachlässigung und Misshandlung von Kindern jedoch wirksam präventiv vorzubeugen ist es schwierig zu sagen, wie guy frühzeitig erkennen kann welche Familien Hilfe benötigen und welche nicht.
Somit werde ich in meiner Hausarbeit zunächst anhand dem Modelprojekt: „Frühe Hilfen für Eltern und Kinder und soziale Frühwarnsysteme“ auf Frühwarnsysteme eingehen und im zweiten Punkt das Modellprojekt seasoned type Sachsen auskoppeln und vorstellen. Des Weiteren möchte ich hier ein paar kurze Erläuterungen einer intestine befreundeten Hebamme meiner Heimatstadt Zwickau einbringen. Aus diesen Frühwarnsystemen resultiert, unter anderem, der familienstützende Dienst, den ich am Beispiel der Lebenshilfe Delmenhorst veranschaulichen werde. Zum Anfang meiner Recherche zu dieser Ausarbeitung stellte sich zunehmend die Frage, wo der Unterschied zwischen Sozialpädagogischer Familienhilfe nach §31 SGB VIII, im weiteren Verlauf SPFH genannt, und FSD liegt und wo sich diese beiden voneinander abgrenzen, beziehungsweise Gemeinsamkeiten besitzen. Um diese Fragestellung beantworten zu können muss ich vorerst SPFH am Beispiel der Einrichtung „Profil-flexible Familienhilfen“ erklären um anschließend FSD und SPFH vergleichen zu können. Familienstützende Dienste sind in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland noch sehr wenig ausgereift, von daher gibt es auch keine einheitliche Definition, Konzeption oder Verankerung im Gesetz. Aufgrund dessen konnte ich keine Fachliteratur diesbezüglich finden und von daher basiert meine Ausarbeitung nur von Quellen aus dem Internet.
