Summary: The overall aim of the project is to contribute towards the improvement and sustainability of the standard Hungarian voluntary return assistance through the provision of complex reintegration support for returnees to their country of origin. This project is of supplementary nature to a current project titled Hungarian Assisted Voluntary Return, Reintegration and Information Programme for Migrants, which a.) facilitates the voluntary and orderly return of 870 beneficiaries, b.) helps up to 60 vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions during their reintegration, c.) provides up-to-date, easily accessible and reliable information to potential beneficiaries of AVRR through various channels and in multiple languages.

To achieve its objective, the project aims to expand the scope of reintegration available to returnees by offering complex in-kind reintegration grants of maximum EUR 3000 to 35 beneficiaries. The proposed project encompasses two main activities:

  1. Reintegration counselling will help beneficiaries to find the best option of generating income in their country of origin, taking into account their training and experience as well as the local economic circumstances.
  2. Beneficiaries need to prepare and submit a detailed reintegration plan. The reintegration plan must include an income-generating activity to be pursued by the applicant. The applicant can choose from several options such as business start-up, business partnership, salary subsidy, on-the-job training and vocational and language training. It is possible to select more than one income-generating activity.
