We provide

Housing counselling

Housing counselling is offered to everyone who is moving into our homes. It is necessary to support young people, so that they manage to keep control of their lives and prevent any kind of crises. One of the most important methods is simply to familiarize the tenants with the whole idea of being independent and living alone. The process also includes responsible tenant selection as well as interference in problem situations. Our housing instructors are always there if you need to talk to someone or ask for help.

Individual support in living

Assistance on how to get started is offered during the first months of housing and is voluntary. The focus is on the skills and routines that you need for independent living.

The topics that are covered are for example paying the rent, taking care of your home, obeying the regulations and applying housing allowance.


Tenant activities

Residential activity is meant for all residents of NAL homes. We organize all kinds of activities: social evenings, movie nights, trips, communal work event etc.

We also organize regular meetings where all the residents can participate and affect matters, which concern their homes. All tenants are encouraged to take part in decision making.
