Established in September 2020, after the fires in the Moria reception centre on the Greek island of Lesvos, the Task Force Migration Management works with the Greek authorities and EU agencies to improve conditions for migrants arriving to Greece. The Task Force was established based on an agreement between Greece and the European Commission. It is also supported by a group of Member States.
The relocation scheme puts the European Union’s values and core priorities of migration policy in action - to care for vulnerable people and promote their well-being.
The programme 'Hellenic Integration Support for Beneficiaries of International Protection (HELIOS)' helps people to become part of a new community when they have been granted asylum, also known as international protection.
Two years ago, when fires destroyed the camp in Moria, Europe responded rapidly as countries sent aid to help the host community on Lesvos. The European Commission funded transfers of asylum seekers to the mainland.
