The article presents a study on the quantitative status of Supported Employment in Spain. It has been developed by the Institute for Community Integration (INICO) of the University of Salamanca in collaboration with Spanish Association for Supported Employment (AESE). Every known program was contacted and relevant information was gathered using a questionnaire. The results of the study show that there are 35 programs in the whole of Spain which have supported 1,389 individuals. In the study, some other factors are analysed: evolution, autonomous community distribution, maintained jobs, persons integrated by type of disability, continuance in the job, support needs, job coaches per post, and participation in European Community funding. Eventually, the study is drawn to an end by a critical analysis of gathered data and some conclusions and suggestions are put forward so as to guide the development of Supported Employment programs.
