Led by the Cyprus Refugee Council, this project builds on the organisation´s previous experience in implementing an ATD pilot and advocating for decreasing the use of detention in Cyprus. The project is aimed at reducing immigration detention, promoting engagement based ATD and contributing to the growing evidence and momentum on ATD at a national and regional level. In order to do so, CyRC will provide individualized and holistic case management, encouraging trust, engagement and collaboration with the system, working towards case resolution and contributing to reduced use of detention. The ATD pilot will provide CyRC with further qualitative and quantitative data to demonstrate that the proposed case management model can lead to higher engagement rates and case resolution.
