​We have a regular dialogue with the Greek Government on counter-terrorism matters, including the risks of radicalisation in Greece.

In addition, we are working with the Greek authorities to identify unaccompanied asylum-seeking children who may be eligible for the transfer of their claim to the UK where they have close family here, and are working with Greece to identify unaccompanied refugee children in line with the Dubs amendment. As part of its humanitarian programming, the Department for International Development has set up the Refugee Children's Fund for Europe (RCFE). The RCFE is a £10 million one-year programme to provide shelter and protection services to children, especially unaccompanied ones, in Greece and the Balkans.
