Active inclusion for young people with disabilities or health problems




EPR is involved in the research project on Active Inclusion of young people with disabilities and health problems promoted by Eurofound with the aim to evaluate and compare the status of the active inclusion of young people with disabilities in different countries. The research is paying attention to activation measures covering access to social services, integration in the labour market, support to adequate income and lifelong learning opportunities.


Phase I of the project has been completed in six Member States - Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom.


Phase II research has been completed in five further countries.


The studies show the reasons for the increase of the take-up of incapacity benefits among young people in the EU Member States and identifies strategies to handle this trend. Three EPR member organisations (Luovi, Momentum and Los) have drafted case studies on good practice of active inclusion and national reports on the progress of this concept in policy development and services at national level.


National reports are available for download on European Foundation for the improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) website



An executive summary is available in different languages.
