Active inclusion of young people with disabilities or health problems


This Eurofound study examines the situation of young people with health problems or disabilities in 11 countries (Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom) and at EU level, with an emphasis on assessing the implementation of active inclusion policy at national level. Active inclusion policy seeks to integrate measures measures in relation to three pillars – adequate income, inclusive labour markets and access to quality services – for people furthest from the labour market. The main aim of the research is to see how the policy has been implemented to move young people with health problems or disabilities from inactivity into employment. Forty-four diverse and innovative case studies of good practice are analysed to distil the characteristics of service providers, their experiences and the success factors underlying their projects to formulate conclusions that are applicatble across the EU. Some of the case studies are dedicated to mental health, a growing concern in the majority of countries that were studied. Particular attention is paid to the ongoing debates around reforms at the national level.
