The project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Grants Greek NGO Programme “We are all Citizens”. The Bodossaki Foundation is the Fund Operator of this Programme. The Programme aims to strengthen civil society and enhance the contribution of NGOs to social justice, democracy and sustainable development. 

Goals: The Program aims to prevent the social marginalization of refugees, with emphasis placed on the most vulnerable of groups, through the provision of complementary services aiming at the strengthening and integration of refugees. This empowerment will provide support to refugees as they integrate into Greek society, and seek the appropriate autonomy necessary to address the threat of social exclusion, along with the possibility of poverty, and to confirm the rights guaranteed by their legal status.
Actions:

Provision of complementary and interrelated services as a "package" in the form of a “One Stop Shop” to provide the social welfare services that the state can not adequately provide.

These actions will address needs in key areas of the accession process, including Social Advisory/Counseling, Business Advisory/Counseling, Legal Assistance in the attainment and renewal of asylum, and Legal Consultancy for accession issues

The program also aims to establish informative activities, which will be implemented in cooperation with the Greek Forum of Refugees. The project services are provided by qualified professionals on an anonymous basis and are free of charge to all citizens.

 

Results:

1200 people will benefit from the services provided by the One Stop Shop (ONE STOP SHOP) to strengthen and help integrate refugees.
