Innovative Practices 2013 on Employment
Inclusive partnering with the post office
|Name of Innovative Practice:||Inclusive partnering with the post office|
|Organisation:||Soziale Dienste der Kapuziner (slw) Austria|
In cooperation with Austrian Post, non-profit organisations (NPO) active in assisting persons with disabilities help make the step from “protected” forms of employment into the general labour market a success.
The first inclusive partnership with Austrian Post began in Innsbruck on April 10, 2012. In this postal partnership team, persons with and without disabilities work together in the primary/general labour market, and on an equal basis.
The interaction of persons with and without disabilities in the environment of a recognised service, such as the postal service, is significant for changing the perception of persons with disabilities in the labour market; with appropriate supervision and support, persons with disabilities provide valuable – and equal – contributions to services that are important and indispensable for our society.
