How Melhus organises important welfare tasks in a brand new way

Melhus saw a need to rethink the organisation of welfare. In particular, they wanted to investigate how the inhabitants with problems related to drugs and mental health, could easily gain access to assignments, and thus be resources in the local community. The solution was Nyby, increased inclusion and more hands for the most vulnerable.

It's all about thinking about society in a different way. Not as "us" and "them", but as "we".

Case study: Nyby in Melhus

To case study 

Nyby mentioned in the mayor of Melhus's May 17 speech: "The Nyby app has taken off".

On Norways National Day, we were so lucky to be highlighted during Mayor of Melhus Jorid Jagtøyen's speech. Watch the clip here.

We started out in a relatively small scale with Nyby, but we have constantly expanded with more services and businesses, because the app offers so many opportunities.
