Better Stories in Luxembourg
When it has come to alleviating the impact of COVID-19 policies on inequalities, civil society organisations – NGOs, local governments, or citizens – have developed many initiatives, many “Better Stories”. RESISTIRÉ’s team of national researchers has collected and highlighted a set of particularly relevant initiatives in 31 European countries. Find out what has been developed in Luxembourg!

In this section you will find more in-depth information on the most inspiring civil society initiatives, selected in each country by our national researchers.
The Relay houses (maisons relais) are operated by municipalities alone or with the support of facility managers from CSOs (in this case, the Red Cross). Their primary objective is to provide parents with the option to work by offering care after school hours or during closures. These houses offer temporary socio-educational care for children and young people under 18 outside regular school hours. They primarily cater to families residing in the municipality or children attending school there.
Starting from April 2021, Caritas Luxembourg has been operating a new mixed night shelter called “L’Espoir” in Bonnevoie, under the authority of the City of Luxembourg and the Ministry for Family, Integration, and the Greater Region. This new night shelter replaced the former one in the station area, which now serves exclusively as a shelter for the most vulnerable homeless women. The first women were admitted in early May. The night shelter operates every day from 7.30 pm to 9 am, providing a safe place for women to spend the night and offering support for those seeking a fresh start. Caritas Luxembourg manages the night shelter on behalf of the Ministry for Family, Integration, and the Greater Region.
