New opportunities for young adults with disabilities enrolled in LEAD Project

On the 21st of October, Olivia Grigore, labour market expert with HAO, participated in the Fact Finding and Local Activities Conference organised by the Youth Equality Promotion Association (ADAPTO), at the headquarters of the School Center for Inclusive Education “Albatros”. Strengthening public-private collaboration in order to organise inclusive sports activities was the main objective of the conference.

The social services offered to people with disabilities, using sports facilities by them and their relatives, strategies that could be applied in order to facilitate their access to these services and activities were some of the topics addressed during the event by specialists from non-governmental organisations involved in the integration of people with disabilities into society and by those from the public environment.

The conference was a good opportunity for our team to identify new opportunities for the development of young beneficiaries enrolled in LEAD project, including through participation in sports activities, being known that the sport is very important for their psycho-somatic development and for their integration into society. Moreover, Olivia had the possibility to talk about: the activity carried out by HAO within the LEAD project, the services offered to young adults with disabilities in Constanța and about the results obtained by our team.

According to ADAPTO, this Association will organise a few events, both in physical format, (open to the general public), and online (in order to reach as many people with/without disabilities and their relatives as possible). It should be noted that the local non-governmental organisations involved in this project will receive the label “Sport without barriers” at the European level.

The project “Labour market Employment for young Adults with a Disability – LEAD” is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
