Refugees and asylum-seekers in Greece can now receive practical help, advice and assistance on how to navigate the Greek labour market, through an Integration Centre located in Athens, operated by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Caritas Hellas, with support from UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. ADAMA Centre has already accepted more than 1,200 requests from men and women to get ready for employment and access essential social services in the country.
Refugees across the country can attend in-person and remote sessions in English, Farsi, Arabic, French, Sorani, Kurmanji and, soon, Ukrainian.
The Centre prepares refugees for the job market by helping them develop a CV and issue the necessary documents for applications, links them to specific job openings and provides interview preparation, as well as coaching and support while on the job.
It also educates refugees about employee rights and responsibilities, salary scales, job ethics, and childcare options for working fathers and mothers. A dedicated space is available for children to safely use and play while their parents attend counselling sessions.
In addition to employment support, the Centre also has specialised services for vulnerable persons, including homeless and persons with disabilities, to facilitate their access to essential social services.
