Περιγραφή

It is a pioneering program that offers comprehensive support to unaccompanied minors in Greece who live in precarious or homeless conditions.

The program is carried out under the supervision and coordination of the National Emergency Response Mechanism (“EMEA”) of the Special Secretariat for the Protection of Unaccompanied Minors of the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum.

The aim of the program is to inform, support and empower unaccompanied minors in order to move away from precarious living conditions, by transferring them to formal unaccompanied minors accommodation structures or semi-independent living apartments.

The “Protection for All Minors” program innovates by introducing a new term/role, the so-called Carer.

The Carer will undertake the guidance and provision of psychosocial and legal support to unaccompanied minors, the conduct of individual or group meetings and sessions and the organization of external group empowerment and socialization activities, based on their needs, with the aim of removing them from precarious living conditions .

The work of the Carers will be supported by a team of cross-cultural mediators covering the following languages: Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Bengali.

At the same time, the Carers will have a daily presence at the Regional Asylum Offices (Alimos, Attica, Piraeus), with the aim of immediately informing unaccompanied minors, who request international protection.
