At social services in periods? : A study about young adults' need of income support (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out how social workers in one medium and one small

municipality in central Sweden perceive the need of financial support for young adults for

more than one year and what the causes might be. To answer our research questions a

qualitative research method was used and four social workers were interviewed. The result

has been analyzed based of social exclusion, stigma, as well as on structural and individual

level and linked to previous research. Our results show that although young adults are an

exception for long duration for financial support, there are those who lack other means of

support for a long time. The results also show that young adults often are recurring in the

social services, and they are long-lasting. The reasons for the need have been shown to be

similar in the medium and the smaller municipality, even if it appears differences seen to

affect the clients. The result shows that the absence of school results, mental illness, security

and organization of social services are causes of long- term need for income support. The

study shows that the long-standing young adults often lack a secure social network and social

workers perceive that they are often a security, a stable contact in the young adults' lives that

may be difficult for these young adults to leave.
