The Points of Support Programme is addressed to Greek private non-profit and volunteer organisations, as well as social cooperative enterprises. The Programme aims, on the one hand, to support original small-scale actions with maximum social impact for the benefit of vulnerable social groups and, on the other hand, to empower and build the capacity of the above civil society organisations.
