European Union of Supported Employment
The European Union of Supported Employment (EUSE) was established in 1993 to facilitate the development of Supported Employment throughout Europe. This is achieved through the promotion of the Supported Employment model, the exchange of information and knowledge and good practice in Supported Employment and development of the model service.
EUSE provides a platform for networking with other organisations and associations at European and worldwide level. The EUSE is represented on the Board member of the European Disability Forum and other European Networks and the newly established European Association of Service Providers.
