The Network for Children’s Rights runs the Multifunctional Municipal Health Clinic of Patision, (4, Sarantaporou St.) on behalf of the Municipality of Athens.  Its specialist team of experts offers psychosocial services to beneficiaries of the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD).

The Centre for the Child caters to all children up to 15 years of age and their parents, and runs a range of activities designed to promote social inclusion.  For children there are creative activities and learning support, as well as a child psychologist, social worker and speech therapist.  For adults the Centre offers psychosocial support, job advice and accounting assistance.

This programme was selected by the FEAD as a Model of Good Practice and is presented in the catalogue of 28 case studies from all over Europe, which can be found here. The Network’s Centre for the Child can be found on p31.
