Resources on employment
of Young Adults
with a Disability
In recent decades, there has been progress on the development of Supported Employment services for persons with disabilities. However, despite these advances, people with disabilities are less likely to be employed or to receive proper assistance, training and education for employment than the general population.

Mapping of National Supported Employment service providers
In order to address this dire situation Supported Employment (SE) providers seek to decrease unemployment and increase labour force participation of people with disabilities. While the Supported Employment providers share the same challenges there is often lack of collaboration among them, at local and regional level, and certainly at national level. Hence, through the project ‘Labour market Employment for young Adults with a Disability - LEAD’, Ref. No 217-1-455 co-financed by EEA & Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment, we decided for beneficiary countries (RO, PT & LT) to establish National Networks of Supported Employment Providers (LEADNET) in order to increase the quality of employment services delivered and but also to influence public politics in the area of employment inclusion for people with disabilities, with a focus on Young Adults with a Disability (Y/AwD).
