The reports explore how policymakers can help the long-term unemployed to find or to stay in work. The two new papers mark the end of a two-year mutual learning project on long-term unemployment developed by the European Social Fund (ESF) Transnational Platform.
Three years on from the adoption of the Council Recommendation on integration of the long-term unemployed, individualised support for long-term unemployed has become a rule across the EU, as revealed in the recent Commission evaluation. Yet those facing multiple barriers to entering the labour market, such as persons with disabilities, still need more targeted and intensive support.
Eurodiaconia’s members have a lot of experience in creating individualised support to promote access to employment for all people, especially for those with specific needs, such as long-term unemployed persons, people with a migrant background, young people, persons with disabilities or with mental health issues. This is reflected in our latest policy paper on ‘strategies to promote access to employment for all people”.
