Points of Support Program -John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation

Online information on social benefits for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

The “Online information on social benefits for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants” project is implemented by the Greek Forum of Refugees and funded under the Points of Support Program*. The Greek Forum of Refugees created an online platform, that aims to update every refugee and migrant who needs to come into contact with organizations, who offer all kinds of social benefits. That can be achieved with direct access to these organisations through the online information platform, which is displayed in a special category on the site of the Greek Forum of Refugees (http://refugees.gr/) on the Social Benefits button. The collection of this information was made during the period “April-June 2016”. The basic services/benefit categories that make up the backbone of the program are:

1. Education and Training
2. Greek Language Lessons
3. Accommodation
4. Alimentation and Clothing
5. Medical Support
6. Psychological Support
7. Legal Support
8. Social Support
9. Refugee Crisis
10. Emergency Phone Numbers

Social Services EN

We call each and every organisation/initiative to participate in this endeavor with provision of the information that they have and the actions that they take, but also to continuously update us, if there are changes, termination or implementation of new programs and actions relating to refugees and migrants. The only purpose of this program is to provide easy and immediate access to any individual in need to useful information, in order to communicate directly by himself/herself, with the operator that he/she wishes. For that reason, all files are available in 5 languages (Greek, English, French, Arabic and Farsi). Any additional information on free benefits and services is really valuable.

(*) This action is being financed from the Public Benefit Foundation John S. Latsis under the “Points of Support” program, implemented by the John S. Latsis-Public Benefit Foundation, the TIMA Public Benefit Foundation and the charity foundation “Hellenic Hope”.
