Solidarity Network Nicosia In Action
by Nicosia Municipality Multifunctional Foundation 

Project Objectives

To become the flagship social service provision hub for vulnerable populations in Cyprus through the provision of social services.

The overall objective of the project is to enable vulnerable and marginalised people in Nicosia to become active and be integrated in society. The project purpose is to address the increasing needs of vulnerable and deprived people in the wider Nicosia area with focus on the city centre where vulnerable communities reside.

The Solidarity Network Hub is housed in a newly refurbished building in the city center and provides innovative social services to the most deprived citizens. In its role as a hub it integrates various social services of the Foundation and of other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who act within the area of Nicosia Municipality to create a network of social services. This model relies on networking with other stakeholders to maximize the impact of the efforts across the community in a range of fields varying from reducing social disparities to providing free legal, counselling, accounting, services, child-care and child protection etc. The network was established and welcomes new members to join throughout the project duration. The project is revolutionary in Cyprus as for the first time it brings together.

The services available to the target groups include psychosocial support, entrepreneurship development, career counselling and employability support, legal advising, family budget advice, and in-home childcare provision.
