DREAMM IDENTITY AND LOGO ESEC

What is the DREAMM project?

DREAMM stands for “Develop and Realise Empowering Actions for Mentoring Migrants”.

It is about “New ways of bringing together newly arrived Third-Country Nationals and local communities”.

Integration between newly arrived migrants coming from countries outside the European Union and members from the local communities is still a challenge for the EU. Eight organisations from Austria, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Malta, with different field migration expertise, are operating together to experiment with various community actions to help migrants integrate.

What does the project want to reach?

This project intends to reach a better mutual understanding of each other’s values and behaviours, foster a sense of belonging to a community, mitigate stereotypes, discrimination, xenophobia, and racism, make newly arrived migrants capable of accessing local services supported by an inclusive community network.

How can the project achieve its goal?

One powerful tool for local development and social change has proven to be volunteering. However, to become an effective and structured practice, volunteering needs management and professional skills that are unclear, informal, and poorly used in the migration field.

With the help of volunteers and professionals, DREAMM promotes peer-to-peer learning events and joint social activities. To do this, a dedicated orientation and integration service is implemented, i.e., the DREAMM One-Stop-Shop.

Which actions are implemented?

Joint community actions comprise of

  • information
  • orientation
  • learning events
  • social activities

empower newly arrived migrants and help members from the local communities – with or without migration experience – to achieve a mutual integration process, as well as facilitate communication between migrants and local public and private services providers.

What is the DREAMM One-Stop-Shop?

With the DREAMM project, we intend to set up a “One-Stop-Shop” model of service where newly arrived migrants coming from countries outside the EU can find information and orientation to their concrete needs in terms of access to public and private services all in one place.

The DREAMM One-Stop-Shop is a hub and first contact point where newly arrived migrants and members from the local communities meet to achieve target oriented activities.

What are the DREAMM One-Stop-Shop activities?

The One-Stop-Shop consulting activities are based on migrants’ individual needs and its target include gender-balanced vulnerable groups, such as asylum seekers and refugees.

Concretely, it

  • provides general information about access to public and private services (health, housing, education and training, social activity)
  • provides general information on the legal status of migrants
  • orients migrants to DREAMM activities, such as language and communication courses, social activities, and fun workshops to familiarise with the local context
  • helps migrants assess needs and priorities and make friends and become part of the DREAMM community

The “One-Stop-Shop” is a place of social exchange and intercultural interaction

Volunteers who would like to have an experience as DREAMM Mentors can join the DREAMM community any moment along the process.

DREAMM Mentors volunteering in the DREAMM project will receive a certificate at the end of their participation.
