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.
Norsesund is situated about 50 km from Gothenburg, on the west coast of Sweden. The facility is idyllically placed by lake Sävelången and can accommodate around 20 residents.
This facility is characterised by a family feeling, as only about 10 residents can be accommodated here. The main building is from the early nineteen hundreds with big green areas surrounded by beautiful nature.
This facility is Basta’s first and biggest. It is situated about 50 km south of Stockholm. The facility covers 80 hectares of land and includes several buildings that accommodate around 70 residents.
