Project Title
Cyprus Reception Centre for Unaccompanied Minors

Project Promoter:
Social Welfare Services of Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance

The overall objective of the project is to increase the long-term unaccompanied children’s reception and hosting capacity of the Republic of Cyprus. This will be achieved through the creation of a centre, composed of two separate buildings, to host up 100 unaccompanied children (up to 50 girls and up to 50 boys). The centre will provide immediate access to services and legal rights to unaccompanied children arriving in the Republic of Cyprus, within the rule of law and respect for human rights. The financial support provided by the Donors will be spent on the renovation of the buildings, purchase of equipment and training of the staff. The operational costs for the centre will be covered by national/EU funds.
