about

Loughan House is an open prison allowing residents to move freely in the outdoor areas surrounding the facility during the day. Even though the facility is remote, the staff and residents create interaction with the community. There is openness to the general public/interaction with the community, the public is encouraged to visit the Coffee shop, poly-tunnel/garden center, and to avail of the car wash/valet service. All these services are operated by the residents. Additionally, residents have the opportunity to work both inside and outside the open center, attend training sessions and courses, go to schools, etc. Nevertheless, this happens less frequently due to the remote and difficult location.

Visited during the wish-eu project

Small-scale, differentiated and community-integrated facilities can be found in many European countries. There is not one, but a thousand detention houses. As part of the two-year WISH-EU Project, Prison Insider developed an interactive map that visualizes a database of detention facilities from various European regions. Throughout this European-funded project, we identified and visited over 40 good practices that apply one or more of the following principles: small-scale, differentiation and community-integration. Since then, RESCALED has continued to identify and visit practices whose stories can inspire us to drive systemic change. We have further developed the map to include various filters and detailed reports so you can get to know these inspirational practices!
