Finding employment for persons with disabilities who are refugees in Sweden
How do you get a job in Sweden? What support does the Swedish Public Employment Service offer to people with disabilities and what are the requirements?
Getting a grant from DHR Bidragsstiftelsen!
DHR Bidragsstiftelsen (the grant foundation) awards grants for things that can improve life for people with reduced mobility. The idea is that more people will have a better and richer life.
But note that the application period is only between 1st May and 1st September each year.
The Swedish Agency for Participation (MDF) made a booklet in the beginning of 2003 “For people with a disability who have recently arrived in Sweden” (we were involved and have the booklet in print)
ILI:s earlier project Disabled Refugees Welcome, 2017-2020 had these goals:
The project will improve the reception of asylum seeker who have disabilities by building a network of government agencies, NGOs and individuals working with asylum seekers. Our partners in this network will refer asylum seekers with disabilities to us and the information we provide, through flyers, social media, a printed guide, email and the project website.
