Bocholt (PID). The welcome package, which annually rounds about 550 families with newborn children is already crowded. Now it gets one more coupon. The sports club TuB Bocholt has decided to supplement the welcome package of the Department of Youth, Family, School and Sport. As of autumn 2019, each mother will receive a voucher as part of the welcome visit, entitling her to attend one of the 42 fitness classes at TuB Bocholt. Since March 2013, families in Bocholt receive a welcome visit from a member of the youth, family, school and sports department of the city of Bocholt , "With the visit for newborns we want to inform all families about offers of help and jobs in Bocholt, which can be interesting and important for families because of their new life situation", emphasizes Ingo Borgers, head of the social services division. There were about 600 births per year in the 2018 550 families who made the welcome visit. "The visits are very welcome, with the second and third child, the families give up before then," Borgers continues. The measure will be funded from the project "Early Aid" of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. "For us it is important that the families find out what they can get in terms of help," adds Stefanie Niehaves, responsible for the welcome visits. "The offer from TuB fits well into our package. It's not just about fitness but also about building and expanding the social network, "says Borgers.
