Bridging Services aims to increase the capacity and sustainability of CSOs and Refugee/Migrant Led Organizations (MRLOs) that work on both sides of Cyprus and provide services to vulnerable persons with refugee and migrant backgrounds, including victims of trafficking, torture, and gender-based violence.

The project will develop and deliver training sessions promoting the adoption of interdisciplinary, multi-level and holistic needs assessment methods for addressing the needs of vulnerable refugees/migrants and operating principles that ensure transparent and accountable governance among CSOs/MRLOs in the sector.

The collaborative process of identifying and addressing the capacity needs of CSOs and MRLOS on both sides of the divide will increase the capacity of partner organisations. It will allow for developing relevant, updated, and meaningful training content, substantially increasing participating CSOs’ and MRLOs’ ability to offer efficient, sustainable, and harmonised services to vulnerable refugees and migrants.

The bicommunal character of the project activities will facilitate networking between CSOs and MRLOs on both sides of the divide, allowing for the creation of a standard operation framework and laying the foundation for broader valuable synergies both during as well as after the completion of the project.

The Bridging Services project benefits from a grant under the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus programme, funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, through the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.
