Employment for People with Disabilities
The EASPD website hopes to contribute to full employment of people with disabilities and will tackle barriers and gaps, facilitate stakeholder cooperation, develop innovative approaches and support Human Rights based initiatives. EASPD represents close to 8000 service provider organizations across disability and across Europe. A considerable part of the EASPD membership provides job-related services or employment to people with disabilities. Employment and job opportunities, therefore, are high on the agenda of the service providers in Europe.
