ARSIS- Association for the Social Support of Youth implements the project «You are not alone! Action for the protection of unaccompanied minors”, funded by Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (U.DI.), under the bilateral funds of EEA Grants.
The aim of the project is the creation of an operational framework for the shelters for unaccompanied minors asylum seekers in Greece, that until today operate without one, fact that hinders the work of organizations that operate these accommodation structures.
In order to achieve this goal, a series of activities has been scheduled, including the seeking and collection of operational frameworks from other European countries, the communication with the Ministry of Labour, which is the administrative authority for the shelters for unaccompanied minors asylum seekers that operate in the framework of “METOIKOS” program and the exchange of good practices between ARSIS and two Norwegian organization with vast experience in the reception and accommodation of minors, Norwegian People’s Aid and Hero Norge.
