On March 28, 2024 a conference was held at the “Ktima Koussiumi” in Nicosia, in the presence of the President of the Republic of Cyprus, the Deputy Minister of Social Welfare, Officials/Representatives of the Union of Communities, the Union of Municipalities and the EU, as well as the stakeholders involved, for the implementation of the Project (Operation of Strategic Importance) “Strengthening the Social Welfare Services”, with a total budget of €48 mil., which is implemented within the framework of the Cohesion Policy Programme “THALIA2021-2027”, co-funded by the EU.

The conference included the signing of Memorandums of Cooperation between the Social Welfare Services (SWS), the Deputy Ministry of Social Welfare and Mayors/Presidents of Community Councils for the implementation of the “Neighbourhood Social Worker” action in Cyprus. 

The signing under the auspices of the President of the Republic Mr. Nikos Christodoulides, of 39 Memorandums of Cooperation, covering 17 Municipalities and 22 Community clusters, marks the beginning of the Pan-Cypriot expansion of the “Neighbourhood Social Worker”, demonstrating the importance of synergies for the provision of better and higher quality services to citizens.

The “Neighbourhood Social Worker” action is a successful State-Local Authorities synergy, aiming at early identification of challenges and addressing them, prevention and two-way communication with citizens.

It is an innovative institution which will be implemented from May 2024 in 106 Municipalities and Communities through 29 programmes all over Cyprus, with 32 Social Workers and 10 Supervisors, and aims to support citizens in a direct and effective way as well as to support Local Authorities in the better implementation of their work in the fields of social welfare and social cohesion.
