LOBBY - Podcast #1

1 October 2021
How can we ensure that detained youth are not at risk of becoming homeless after releasement?

This is the question we are working on this year. Together with (formerly)detained youth, we look for new ways to improve the transition from detention to releasement. The stories and ideas of these young people will serve as the starting point for the research: de LOBBY.

YiP sat down and talked with three formerly detained boys. They discussed the feeling of home, the struggles they experienced after releasement and how they rebuiled the feeling of home. Listen to the conversation on Spotify or search for LOBBY in your favorite podcast app!

LOBBY is welcomed at various aid organizations in Rotterdam. For this podcast production, it was De Rotterdamse Douwers that opened its doors to us.
