Elevator (The Salvation Army)

Elevator (The Salvation Army)

Elevator is located in an apartment complex near Tveita in Oslo, Norway. It is an institution for people, both men and women, who are nearing the end of their sentences. In fact, the target group consists of people with 3 to 12 months left of their sentence who are motivated for change. In addition, applicants must be sober for at least 4 months to be eligible for the program. Elevator is operated by the Salvation Army and is fully funded by the government through the Directorate of Norwegian Correctional Services. Instead, the staff usually has a background in social work or nursing. Elevator’s goal is to help residents find stable housing, meaningful work, financial stability, good health and a supportive social network so that these goals are achieved by the time of their release.

Mapped by the RESCALED-movement

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!
