Curing the Limbo Expert Journal: Get an update on what has been happening in the last 6 months

Journal 4 picture
Short description
This journal accompanies Curing the Limbo in its past half year of progress.

By giving an account of the main activities and achievements of each project component, the fourth issue explores the 6-month period for stabilising the components of Curing the Limbo: as of February 2020, over 296 people had registered for the programme, and 62 of them signed rental contracts, 23% of whom had obtained a job. The past months have also been a period of innovation: based on the learnings of the first years of Curing the Limbo, a variety of new services were tested within the programme. The employment pillar was expanded with entrepreneurship courses, the housing service set in motion a Social Rental Agency and a corresponding online platform, and synAthina launched Co-Athens, a process to develop collaborative actions with the participation of neighbourhood initiatives and refugees.
