Troubled suburbs and children living there will get a boost in funding next year after the government and its parliamentary parties agreed to invest 3 billion kronor on things like language education and child care.

In the autumn budget, politicians have set aside 100 million kronor for Swedish language training in preschools, as well as 250 million kronor to increase access to foster homes for children who need to be removed from homes where they might be at risk.

The proposal is part of the government's fall budget, an agreement that's being worked out between the Social Democrats and Green parties as well as their parliamentary partners the Liberals and Center party.
