KVJJ North

The Small-Scale Judicial Youth Facility North, also known as small-scale facility “Noord” (from now on “KVJJ North”) is a low-security facility where young people undergo deprivation of liberty close to their living environment. This facility is located in Groningen, a city in the north of the Netherlands, and was opened in 2021. It is one of five small-scale youth facilities in the Netherlands and falls under the jurisdiction of the Netherlands Judicial Institutions Agency. However, the facility is managed by Elker. Elker is an organization that assists children, youth, parents and schools with complex growth, education and parenting issues through treatment, residential and educational placement for children and youth. KVJJ North provides youth with customized safety, supervision and guidance in a positive learning and living environment.

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!
