Inclusion of people with disabilities

 

Since 2004, we have been working on the inclusion of men and women with disabilities. Our projects aim to improve accessibility of all areas of life – from education to the labour market – to enable persons with disabilities to live independent, safe and healthy lives. We try to work as inclusively as possible and do our research together with people with disabilities.

Zugang von Frauen mit Behinderungen zu Opferschutz- und Unterstützungseinrichtungen bei Gewalterfahrungen. Nationaler Empirischer Bericht Österreich

In the project "Access to specialised victim support services for women with disabilities who have experienced violence" empirical research was done on the issue of violence against women with disabilities – in their view and that of service providers. The "National Empirical Report Austria" presents the findings from Austria.

The publication is available in German only.

15 Frauen mit Behinderung – 15 Wege zur Arbeit

This publication has been issued by the Austrian Labour Market Service (AMS) as a contribution to the "European Year of Equal Opportunities for All". The brochure wants to put a finger on the fact that women with a disability face specific and highly individual situations in the world of work, that they have very different points of departure and bring with them different strengths and abilities. The publication is based on interviews with 15 disabled women.

The publication is available in German only.
