Written for the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM) –
“Never Alone – Building our future with children and youth arriving in Europe” is a collaborative fund led by the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM), dedicated to the protection and long-term perspectives of children and youth on the move in Europe. Through this fund, work in four focus countries (Greece, Italy, Germany and Belgium) as well as at European level is supported.
In 2016-2018, together with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the John S. Latsis Foundation and the Bodossaki Foundation, EPIM supported civil society organisations in Greece working on the identification and protection of unaccompanied and separated children and youth. In order to assess the progress towards the objectives of the fund as well as to draw learnings and highlight good practices for the field, EPIM commissioned an external evaluation in 2018, conducted by Maria Antonia di Maio (“Project evaluation and assessment of the context for children and youth on the move: new opportunities for EPIM to engage in Greece”, Maria Antonia Di Maio, February 2018).
This publication aims to summarise key findings from the evaluation by highlighting the outcomes and lessons learned from supported work in Greece.
