Nytida invests in children and young people

2015

In 2015 Nytida acquired Davsjö, Ungstöd and Kängurun – three companies forming the basis of Nytida’s efforts to help children and young people in its individual and family division.

“The expertise and commitment that these companies bring to Nytida create the platform we need to be able to continue growing within the field of care for children and young people. What attracted us to all three companies was the genuine commitment we saw both from the management and the staff in these operations. They have an enormous resource in the strength of their staff – they want to bring about changes, influence people and improve things for the people they are working with,” said Katarina Hult, sector manager at Nytida, when the acquisition was announced.

Ungstöd offers individually tailored solutions within the areas of care, treatment and accommodation for young people dealing with psychosocial problems and neuropsychiatric disorders, and substance abuse, criminality or other socially destructive behaviour. The company runs outpatient care, supported living, trained key workers, foster and family homes and family education schemes. Ungstöd runs facilities in Stockholm, Mälardalen, Örebro-Värmland and Östersund.

Davsjö works with holistic solutions in care, treatment and accommodation for children and young people with psychosocial problems and neuropsychiatric disorders. The company runs outpatient care, investigative units, HVB homes and supported-living accommodation. Davsjö Vård is located primarily in southern Sweden.

Kängurun’s treatment home is in Skara and started operating in 1993. Kängurun works on treating the whole family by providing 24-hour accommodation, investigative support, visitation support and outpatient care. Kängurun works with family relationship and communication patterns and social systems. The aim is to investigate family conditions in order to make positive, long-term changes in the family dynamic.
