Emergency Programme „Känguru“
Känguru offers help for FAU employees who live in Erlangen, Landkreis Erlangen-Höchstadt, Forchheim and the surrounding region if their kids suddenly get sick and they are unable to care for them due to occupational obligations. The reduced costs per hour are € 6, including travel costs (for the region Erlangen and Forchheim). Other service users pay € 17 per hour. In some cases (e.g. social hardships), Kinderschutzbund Erlangen can bear part of the costs.
FAU employees who live in Nürnberg/Fürth pay € 10 per service for travel costs due to the additional expenditure. In addition, there will be calculated one hour working time in compensation for the Känguru employee’s additional travel time.
The Känguru-Team consists of experienced and trained carers who engage in the “DHB Netzwerk Haushalt, Ortsverein Erlangen e.V.” They come to your house, help with the homework and prepare meals – should you wish so. Känguru is an emergency programme so the aim is to stay no longer than 2-3 days at one family at most. This is in order to guarantee that a large number of families can benefit from the programme.
