After the successful Kick-off meeting held in Greece, the power team of New Horizons got together once again for a productive project meeting during the spring festival season in Granada, Spain. Thanks to our excellent hosts DEFOIN the project consortium managed to progress in one of the most important parts of the New Horizons project – the development of the Training curriculum and modules for counsellors working with people with acquired disabilities.
Are our European countries doing enough to fully integrate people with disabilities into labour market and society?
Before starting with the elaboration and adaptation of the counselling programme for long-term unemployed people with disabilities, the partners in the New Horizons project decided to conduct focused desk practice research exploring the needs and the obstacles of the target groups in terms of integration into the labour market.
In the NEW HORIZONS project, dedicated and motivated experts from seven European countries – Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Spain and UK – combine their efforts in order to create and implement an innovative Career Counselling Programme for people with disabilities, acquired due to an accident or a long-standing illness that has severely affected their personal and professional lives.
