Weekly visit from a family support institution

Because there were educational disadvantages, the man was visited weekly by an institution for the well-being of the family, Bartels said.
In the spring of 2018, however, there was an eight-week break due to a change of carrier. "I think we should go along better, but I do not think we have recognized this sexual abuse," Bartels said.
