Empowerment and Career Development for People with Disabilities

National and European labour market policies are challenged especially when it comes to people with disabilities: there are still low employment rates, high unemployment rates and a high number of people with disabilities continues to depend on welfare.It is an agreed objective to promote projects and actions which encourage and empower people with disabilities to enter or remain in the open labour market.

E-C-C is the coordinating partner in the Leonardo da Vinci Partnership “Supported Employment”. What unites us with the other partners is not only our professional involvement in aspects of labour market and disabilities, but also our commitment in this matter and their firm will to contribute to promoting and increasing the labour market participation of people with disabilities, and to identify approaches, and methods for further employment and social inclusion of people with disabilities.
