Usel Attend 1st World Conference on Supported Employment – “Employment for All - A Global Perspective”

We were delighted to be in attendance at the 1st World Conference on Supported Employment – “Employment for All - A Global Perspective”which was held in La Mon Hotel and Country Club Belfast, Northern Ireland,14 – 16 June 2017. 

The conference aimed to challenge everyone to improve access to the employment market by bringing the employers closer to those furthest from the labour market and in doing so recognising the challenges and changes that we as professionals may face.

The conference was hosted by the European Union of Supported Employment (EUSE) and the European Association of Service Providers for people with disabilities (EASPD) and organised by the Northern Ireland Union of Supported Employment (NIUSE).  The organisers  brought together and are working in partnership with the World Association of Supported Employment (WASE), Canadian Association of Supported Employment (CASE), Association of people supporting Employment first (APSE) and Disability Employment Australia.

This was an  excellent opportunity to gain inspiration by a varied range employment experts and to network with colleagues and peers from around the world.
