BACKGROUND

The study contributed to research carried out by the ‘European Observatory for Inclusive Employment and Social Development Goals’ that aims to gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities for socially-inclusive companies to include persons with disabilities in the labour market and society in Europe.

AIMS

Taking a comparative approach, the study developed a framework of indicators in order to analyse and interpret data on the employment experiences of persons with disabilities in different settings of sheltered and supported employment as well as in the transition to inclusive employment, and to map commonalities and differences in the sector’s performance. Furthermore, it seeked to identify gaps in information and data and provide recommendations on focal areas for the future. The study focused on six European countries: Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
