Employment is often seen as a key into Swedish society. Migrants who have disabilities are disadvantaged when it comes to getting a job.

Disabled Refugees Welcome is an initiative that started due to the silence, isolation and lack of support that disabled refugees arriving to Sweden have gone through in the past and present. Our vision is a society and a world where everyone is accounted for as a human being, with equivalent opportunities, choices and self-determination regardless their ethnicity, gender identity, religion, functional ways, etc. We want to reinforce these ground values and be a starting point for change, activation, inspiration and mobilization of the Swedish society into taking action!
