Practical help – support for young people
In May the ”Practical everyday help” project has held a couple of meetings at Brobysjukhuset. About 30 people of different ages took part.
– A lot is happening now, lawyer Bengt Frost tells us.
He is one of the instigators of the project to help young people steer clear of criminality. The project also aims to give marginalised families the chance to find ways of becoming self-supporting and having a good life.
”Many feel a sense of hopelessness, and we could be a support there”Bengt Frost, lawyer
The project is not just for new arrivals – all are welcome.
People with long experience from Rosengård in Malmö are part of the project. Integration professor Masoud Kamali is also involved.
”Practical everyday help” would like to give legal advice and assistance in questions of integration. The group wants to establish contacts with trainee places, summer jobs or permanent jobs.
– Many feel a sense of hopelessness, and we could be a support there, says Bengt Frost.
Kristianstadsbladet’s reporter has spoken to a lot of young people. They are worried about drugs, which are becoming more and more widespread in Broby.
– There’s a terrific amount, and that’s a bad thing, say some of the people who have gathered to listen to representatives for the new project.
