Supported Employment assists people with disabilities (physical, intellectual, psychiatric, sensory and hidden) to access real employment opportunities, of their own choice, in an integrated setting with appropriate ongoing support to become economically and socially active in their own communities.

EUSE provides a platform for networking with other organisations and associations at European and worldwide level.
