In the absence of a especà engine stand support for families of children and young people with they resided under your guard, this scheme provided further that these families could be considered family lia. For the same reason made extension also to relatives in 1. ° degree of the straight line and or 2. ° degree of the collateral line, the support was granted for the maintenance of the child or the young person in the framework of the ¢ foster care.

There is still, through recent data, the child poverty rate has grown in most paà ses rich. Portugal is not other and children live with a risk of poverty higher than the rest of the population. ‰, without doubt, a Government's responsibility to protect children from poverty more acute during their years of growth and formation. µ Empire and, therefore, in tribute to the most basic criteria of Justice relating , a review of the system of rights of family childcare provided for in lias Decree-Law nº 11/2008 and the economic support scheme ³ mico laid down in Decree-Law nº 12/2008 in order to keep the support needed is action of who receives a child or a young person at risk.
