Active inclusion of young people with disabilities or health problems - Background paper

Printer-friendly version

This report reviews the evidence to support the contention that increasing numbers of young people (16 - 34 years) are entering the disability benefits system. It attempts to place this evidence within the context of the many factors that are known to influence the economic activity and labour market participation of young people with disabilities. The study also aims to document any measures targeted at young people with health problems to promote labour market inclusion and the ways in which these systems operate and interact. It makes specific reference to active inclusion measures, including the role of social, health and employment services, as well as educational systems and social partners.
