Skejby halfway house

Skejby halfway house

Skejby halfway house is a facility located in the suburbs of Aarhüs. It is one of eight halfway houses in Denmark and these are all operated by the Danish Prison and Probation Service (Kriminalforsorgen). Skejby halfway house was founded in 1973 as a social experiment where offenders are mixed with non-offenders to minimize their chances of reoffending.

about

Security in Skejby halfway house is based on relational security where good relationships, respect, clear communication, trust, group activities (staff and residents eat together, watch TV together, have group conversations…) are all part of the working method. Skejby halfway house is known for their unique way of working in which they allow people who are involved with the justice system live together with people who are not involved with the justice system (plus and minus residents live together). As a result, there is no “us” versus “them” – feeling, staff versus incarcerated people, as well as people who simply rent a room and participate in this facility completely voluntarily. This contributes to the “confusing dimension” and security in Skejby halfway house.

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!
