The EU disability strategy 2010-2020 aims at eliminating barriers, preventing discrimination and empowering people with disabilities to enjoy fully their rights and participation in society on equal terms with others.
The present study on Supported Employment for people with disabilities in the EU and EFTA-EEA has been initiated to enhance further the possibilities of people with disabilities to participate on the open labour market.
The report features a presentation of Supported Employment in 30 countries and an in-depth study in six selected countries: Austria, Czech Republic, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK. At the end, the report presents policy recommendations for further development of Supported Employment.
