The project

The main objective of the project is to help the beneficiaries to achieve their reintegration and integration into society. The individual social service (with a subset of services) of each beneficiary is the purpose of the project.

The 2 Single Entry Points (SEPs) offer a number of services under the same roof and at the same time inform citizens and offer access to other structures. The two SEPs are hosted in the following areas:

  • at Frourarhio  SEP (Domokou 2, Larissa Station), under the management of NGO Solidarity Now (tel. 210 8220883).
  • at Patissia SEP ( Sarantaporou Street 4, Patissia), the former 5th Municipal Health Clinic,
    under the management of the Municipality of Athens (tel. 210 2015510)

The services will be part of an organized project based on the needs of each beneficiary. The tracking of each beneficiary's progress will be monitored by the Case Handler.

All services, both medical and social,  are offered by municipal authorities in co-ordination and co-operation with the services provided by non-governmental organizations.

The Municipality of Athens is the leader partner of the project,  cooperating with SolidarityNow, Praksis, the Children's Rights Network, First Elements Euroconsultants, Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA), the Reception and Solidarity Center of the Municipality of Athens (KYADA) and the NGO Fenareti. The Municipality of Rotterdam is the associated partner, from which the project receives the know-how.

The services, at the two SEPs offered in partnership with the partners, are:

  • Legal aid and court representation
  • Family/personal budget advice(i.e. beneficiaries in financial distress)
  • Psychosocial support
  • Medical services (primary health care)
  • Employability services (counseling services and/or support for social enterprise)
  • Childcare and parental & child related consultancy
  • Advice and support to pregnant women and new mothers
  • Access to provision of food and NFIs (i.e. clothing, medicines, household cleaning)
  • Asylum fast track procedures

A special group of street workers identifies potentially beneficiaries on the road (homeless, drug addicts, etc.) and refers them to the appropriate SEP according to the need and location.
