WHAT WE DO

RESCALED coordinators, partners and ambassadors 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. Our values are what drive us to give our best every day.
