SCORE– Developing the Skills of Community & Health Workers Working with Refugees“ is a 3year European project, which is implemented by seven partners. The project is an innovative intervention in the framework of education of professionals in working with refugees. It is primarily aimed at service commissioners and providers working in local authorities in children’s and adults’ services. It will also be of interest to asylum seeker and refugee organizations and voluntary organizations in these areas. Most of the projects running so far are aiming in first entrance areas. The project will also help to educate the local societies on the refugee humanitarian problem. The social care services should use a rights-based approach, considering the person as an individual and assessing their need thoroughly, rather than viewing them solely through the lens of status and eligibility.

  • Health professionals
