The project aims to provide voluntary return and reintegration assistance to migrants who, in situations of vulnerability, express the will to return to their country of origin. The project will launch in 2021.
The aim of the project was the provision of necessary support to the Asylum Service to set up a quality assurance mechanism (via developing centrally the Asylum Service’s Quality tools and SOPs and by providing continuous support to new and more experienced caseworkers in a very large caseload of complicated cases), as well as the increase of its presence regionally (to Offices across the country). The project finished in February 2020.
The project addresses the lack of adequate accommodation places and services for unaccompanied minors (UAMs) and women victims of violence and their children in Greece, by establishing 77 accommodation places in Northern Greece…
Through the proposed programme, IOM will provide AVRR assistance to migrants in situations of vulnerability, expressing the will to return to their country of origin. The target will particularly consist of 290 cases of migrants in situations of vulnerability, identified primarily at the Greek borders, and shall include, among others, single parent families, victims of trafficking, migrants with health-related needs, UMCs and elderly migrants. Beneficiaries will receive effective and comprehensive assistance, based on the experience and lessons learned acquired by IOM throughout the years of AVRR operations.
