The Centre for the Child at the Solidarity Centre (Domokou 2, near Larisa Station) is a space that offers free creative and educational activities while promoting and supporting children’s rights.
It is open to infants and children, 0-13 years old, regardless of sex, race, origin or religion. Infants up to the age of 3 must have a parent present. The Centre operates daily from 9am to 6pm.
The Centre for the Child is run by a multidisciplinary team, made up of a psychologist-coordinator and two teachers.
* It organises workshops, outdoor activities and educational programmes and carries out interventions. In addition to its focus on learning, the Centre works towards the general integration into society of its visitors.
* It works with other organisations in cases of whole family intervention
– by offering counselling to parents and children
– by intervening when necessary following child observation on the premises
As a result, the team manages to acquire an overall picture of the family and can therefore decide when and where appropriate referrals need to be made.
The “Center for the Child” at the Athens Solidarity Center operates with the support of Solidarity Now.
