Uncertain future prospects

Uncertainty about the future prospects of the child in care

For many of these children, it is uncertain whether they will be allowed to remain in the Netherlands. A large number of these children will ultimately have to return to their country of origin, even if the circumstances there are sometimes uncertain. It is the government, the IND, which decides on this matter. The guardian and the family do not have an influence on this decision. Sometimes, family also come to the Netherlands unexpectedly. In that case, Nidos aims to reunite the child with his family. During the screening of foster families, attention is paid to the uncertain future prospects and the possibility of reunification with biological parents or family.
