EMSP organised an all-day workshop on employment for people with disabilities, on 29 July, in Brussels, as part of its new Paving the Path to Participation (PPP) project, already acknowledged through a grant awarded by the European Commission’s DG Justice Progress programme.
The event gathered around 30 stakeholders from MS societies, the broader NGO sector, the industry and a representative of DG Justice, Ms Hana Velecka.
