As a result of this project Greece will have a pool of trained professional who will be able to identify, assess, provide support, counsel, rehabilitate and assist torture victims to integrate in the community.
Secondly, the victims will have access to one unit of qualified professionals and a range of services free of charge, which will address their mental, medical, social-economic and legal problems.
Finally, a significant result of the project is the establishment of a data base that will record the cases of victims of torture and document the treatment and the needs for such services. Since a coordinated effort to provide services for victims of torture is not provided at the moment in Greece the project will have a significant impact in the lives of the victims that receive this assistance.
