The Positive Action Employability Programme offers adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to secure paid permanent jobs within a range of posts across the Belfast Health Trust. Belfast Metropolitan College was pivotal in the delivery of this 14-week programme with the support of Belfast Health Trust staff. Throughout the programme the trainees underwent continual assessment and feedback supported by their Tutor, Patient & Client Support Services staff and their Employment Support Officers. As a result, nine trainees graduated from the programme and will now be offered paid employment from available posts within Patient & Client Support Services across the Trust.

Quality Social Services: a Key to Implement the European Pillar of Social Rights

The European Pillar of Social Rights was “proclaimed” by all EU member states, the European Parliament and Commission in November 2017 and is considered a significant initiative in the social field at EU level; according to the European Commission, contributing to “Building a more inclusive and fairer European Union”. It contains “principles and rights essential for fair and well-functioning labour markets and welfare systems in 21st century Europe”, and actions should be taken to implement it at national and EU level. Social Services Europe, in which EPR is an active member, developed the position paper ‘The Role of Social Services in the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights’ in 2018. The paper highlights the importance of these services in achieving the principles in the pillar, and in addition stresses “The effectiveness of the principles described in the Pillar is conditional to the provision of quality services”. The event will take place in Brussels over one and a half days and will include plenary sessions with national and European experts, workshops addressing key issues for quality social service provision, an exchange of best practices and discussion of EU initiatives on quality in the sector.

Training on Employment and Job Coaching skills

Employment represents one of the fundamental elements to guarantee economic security, social inclusion, personal satisfaction and a good quality of life. However, job placement can be particularly difficult, especially for some disadvantaged groups, like people with disabilities. In recent years, Job Coaches tried to support their labour inclusion. However, skills required to Job Coaches are very complex and the effectiveness of their intervention difficult to guarantee. How can companies end employers be involved in the job placement process? How to involve peers? How can supported employment provide effective solutions? What tools are available to Job Coaches?

Manual for trainers to run a comprehensive training course to educate and empower Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEN/D) individuals at school or in the workplace to prevent and tackle bullying, from the project "DisAbuse Disablist Bullying".


DESCRIPTION of the project

Despite the strong belief in sports programs as a setting in which socially vulnerable youth can develop life skills, no overview exists of life skill development in sports programs serving this youth group. Therefore, the present systematic review provides an overview of the evidence on life skill development in sports programs serving socially vulnerable youth and, insofar as it was investigated in the included studies, of the conditions conducive to life skill development in these sports programs.
Disabled people who are one of the disadvantaged groups of society want to live with society just like the people with normal living conditions. This research aims to provide the opportunity of employment and vocational rehabilitation to the disabled people experiencing social exclusion and thereby ensuring their integration with society.
