Me too! Integration of Persons with Disability into the Labour Market

Me too! Integration of Persons with Disability into the Labour Market was co-financed by the European Union – European Social Fund, coordinated by Aġenzija Sapport, within the Foundation for Social Welfare Services, in collaboration with the Employment and Training Corporation (ETC) and the National Commission Persons with Disability (KNPD).

The main aim of Me2 was that of helping persons with disability to develop their skills to improve their work opportunities. Thus they would be able to have a better quality of life and be more independent. Another aim was that to work in favour of social inclusion of persons with disability. Thanks to the work carried out by 23 Support workers, 82 persons with disability benefited from job exposure. Moreover there were 42 companies, of which 18 where public entities and 23 private companies, that offered persons with disability with work experience. 280 beneficiaries received training as part of life long learning and another 50 have found full-time or part-time employment.

Apart from this, thanks to the Me2 project, the Me2 Cooperative has been set up, which will continue the work started by this Project within the disability sector. The Cooperative is currently training and employing persons with disability and is offering services to both the private and public sectors. Currently there are 55 members in this Cooperative which include persons with disability and also parents.
