[Excerpt] Supported employment has brought about improvements in the quality of life of women and men with a disability by enabling them to become active participants in society. It has a positive impact on families – and on employers who benefit from the contribution which disabled people can make at work. The strength of supported employment is that it enables people with disabilities to enter the real world of work by focusing on individual abilities and by providing varying levels of individualized support, depending on needs. Support and advice is also provided to the employer.
