Social Enterprising

Rehabilitation through work

Basta offers rehabilitation through social enterprise

We are forerunners when it comes to finding alternative roads to the labour market for those who are far from it. We have developed one of Sweden’s most unique rehabilitation frameworks and welcome people coming through the Swedish Social Services or the Criminal Justice System.
