Projects

SUPPORTED HOUSING PROJECT

Each family or friendship group is provided with a clean, furnished private apartment where they can live with an increased degree of independence, in humane conditions, and with access to on and off site community and learning spaces, resources and support. We have supported 24 families during their stay in Greece, ensuring that each resident has access to comprehensive medical care, legal support, education and personal development opportunities.

SIDE PROJECTS

We offer dignified and safe accommodation to refugee residents waiting for relocation or reunification with family members in other countries. The project supports people from large families or groups with at least one person that is particularly vulnerable, e.g. people who have experienced crime or persecution, elderly people, disabled people, and single parents.

HEALTH CARE

LEARNING CENTRE

LEGAL ADVICE

We will continue to maintain and extend supported housing projects as long as provision is needed. 

More specifically, we will:

  • Provide improved housing and services at a fraction of the cost of keeping people in camps.
  • Improve health care for residents by facilitating access to healthcare provision and medication.
  • Increase access to useful, reliable and up-to-date information, as well as legal advice and support.
  • Improve access to learning and activities for children, teenagers and adults.
  • Share learning and model with others who can become part of the solution.
  • Create a safe and empowering environment and reduce the physical, social and emotional hazards.
  • Prevent physical and emotional deterioration of individuals currently living in camps.

We aim to replicate and expand the project, and hope it will serve as a template for other groups who want to participate in alleviating the problem.
