WHAT WE DO

RESCALED national offices, members and partner organizations are combining forces to promote small-scale, differentiated and community-integrated detention houses. We do so from a deep conviction that is rooted in key values and based on scientific evidence. When deprivation of liberty is the only solution, it should take place in detention houses.
