Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Employer-driven job creation for people with intellectual disabilities
Lev – Inclusion Denmark is a Danish advocacy organization working to improve the living conditions of people with intellectual disabilities. LEV’s KLAPjob project forms partnerships with a variety of companies to identify and advertise jobs on the open labour market. People with intellectual disabilities are then supported to apply for and undertake interviews with the aim of gaining meaningful employment. From 2014 to 2019, KLAPjob has successfully supported people into 3,684 jobs.
“With my KLAPjob I don’t sit at home bored. I have good workmates who make me more social and outgoing.”
