SLID project was aimed at improving the quality of life of more than 250.000 people with disabilities in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Montenegro and Albania. By providing equal opportunities and erasing discrimination through development of cross border networks, SLID promoted social inclusion and work integration of people with disabilities.
What has been done during the project in order to achieve its main goal(s)?
SLID focused on increasing the level of public awareness about the need for integrating people with disabilities in the society. Activities conducted during the project included improving social services, strengthening organizations addressing issues of people with disabilities and facilitating networking with Government institutions, public and private sector.
A number of researches and comparative analysis were conducted in order to create a bank of knowledge and good practices, which would serve as recommendations for relevant stakeholders, as well as reference for creating policies.
SLID provided an added value in improving availability of education and training for disabled people. It created preconditions to implement pilot activities in vocational education and training during the project.
The project also had an experimental component which enabled the partners to test new initiatives and solutions which could have positive impact on their target group.
Which are the Project Main Results/Impact?
A network of stakeholders was created in order to support social and labour integration of people with disabilities. Likewise, new proposals for integration projects were created during the project in order to raise public awareness about issues related to people with disabilities.
Project website www.etonas.hr was created in order to promote jobs suitable for disabled people. A number of disabled people found employment through the portal, and their testimonials show that they got the opportunity to develop their potential and extend their personal networks.
A model for social and labour integration of people with disabilities was created and successfully implemented in two project partner institutions. This improved capacities of target communities to respond to the needs of people with disabilities through provision of equal access to rights and opportunities.
A joint research and analysis of laws, regulations and job opportunities resulted in implementing recommendations based on the research in five pilot projects. Final report was distributed on all levels in all five countries, which participated in the project.
