Assisted Voluntary Return

 The “Voluntary Assisted Return and Reintegration Programme in Finland” (VARRP-FIN) project was launched in January 2013 and ended on 30 June 2015. The VARRP-FIN project functioned as a continuation of the “Developing Assisted Voluntary Return (DAVRiF)” project that was implemented between 2010 and 2012. The project offered Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration assistance to migrants in Finland. This website continues to offer statistical information and project materials relating to the VARRP-FIN project.
