KETHEA MOSAIC Centre seeks to facilitate the social integration of migrants and refugees. In doing so, it introduces therapeutic principles (such as self-help, mutual help and self-management) into the psycho-social support services it provides. Its services prioritize prevention and counselling on health care, work, family relationships, legal procedures, racism, delinquency, drug abuse, violence and marginalisation. "Steki", a multicultural club in Agios Panteleimon, provides counselling to young immigrants aged 16 to 25 and organises activities designed to promote their social integration and personal development as well as raising awareness of migrant and refugee issues in the area.

KETHEA MOSAIC adopts a multicultural approach and relies on the work of a group of volunteers which includes individuals who have made use of the Centre’s services themselves in the past. KETHEA MOSAIC liaises with migrant and refugee communities and fosters personal empowerment and social interaction. The Centre also co-operates with migrant and refugee associations and other social support services.
