Supported Employment promotes the rights of all individuals to achieve their full potential through a model of flexible support that enables people to overcome barriers to their employability and access real jobs for real pay.
The European Union of Supported Employment (EUSE) is the European umbrella organisation for supported employment. The members of the EUSE are National Associations of Supported Employment in Europe.
EUSE was established in 1993 to facilitate the development of Supported Employment throughout Europe. The Union works to promote the Supported Employment model through the exchange of information and knowledge on good practice. in 2010, the EUSE published the Toolkit for Supported Employment, supported by SUSE. Copies of this toolkit are available from SUSE.
SUSE's representatives at EUSE are Tanya Gilchrist (Shaw Trust) and Kate Storrow (RNIB; SUSE Chair).
