These 18 year olds initiated a new offer in Trondheim, "En ainna plass", after a previous project was finished. They missed a place to hang out for people who don't do sports at Heimdal in Trondheim. An alternative to hanging out at Mcdonald's. Now they are also working as peer supporters in the project founded by Helsedirektoratet.

En ainna plass should be an offer to young people who are struggling or in the risk group to
experience loneliness and social exclusion. The offer shall be a meeting place that offers various
types of activities, as well as offers of individual support interviews.
