Reception families who are affiliated with the OCMW of Oosterzele receive a one-off premium of 500 euros per reception location. In this way, the local government supports them in absorbing the high energy costs.
‘Children’s comfort and health must always be monitored, both at home and in their foster family’, says alderman Els De Turck. ‘Guaranteeing that is a serious financial challenge for our reception families in times when energy costs a lot. That is why we support these families to make good reception possible. During the meeting of 18 October 2022, the OCMW council decided to grant a single premium of 500 euros per reception family. A total of 5 families are affiliated with the OCMW. (mvdv, photos ddl)
