The University of Nicosia in collaboration with the research organisation CARDET, and the Cyprus University of Technology implements the Action entitled: Migrant Info-Centre (CY/2020/AMIF/SO2.NO2.1.3/4). The Action is co-funded by the European Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (90%) and the Republic of Cyprus (10%).
The aim of the project is the provision of information and psychosocial services to migrants and refugees that reside in Cyprus, in order to achieve their social inclusion in the local society. The centers operate in Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos and amongst other offer informational services on migrants’ rights and obligations, translation and interpretation services, job and accommodation assistance, opportunities for learning courses and referrals to other organizations.
The provision of services is implemented under a range of different methodologies such as: social and psychological support and use of technological advancement, direct and indirect communication with governmental and other services.
The main pillars of the provision of services are the following:
- Job finding assistance
- Referral to Language Courses
- Referral to Health Services
- Social Support
The Centres’ working hours are from 10:00 until 18:00 and in Sunday from 10:00 until 17:00. They work with individuals, families and community groups to identify their needs and provide information on a range of options available to them.
They support them to access services and resources that meet their needs and build new skills to adjust harmonically to the Cypriot cultural and social environment. Properly trained and qualified personnel, based on a person-centred approach respond to migrants’ general and more specific needs. The Centers’ comprehensive approach covers many issues related to the settlement and integration of new and emerging communities.
