Greece: National Emergency Response Mechanism (NERM)

 ECPA medal silver ECPA 2023 (preventing trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labour exploitation and other kinds of exploitation)
  Second place


NERM was established in 2021 with the aim of creating a safety net and offering protection to the most vulnerable of Unaccompanied Children (UAC), those who are homeless or in precarious accommodation conditions. These children are at grave risk of falling victim to trafficking networks and being subject to abuse, violence, or exploitation and are often trapped in forced labour, criminality, or sexual work. The emergency mechanism stands as a preventive measure against trafficking by offering protection to this, often undetected, population, who remain unregistered and unable to access any services.

The project started on 5 April 2021 and is still running.
