ZusammenArbeit - Inclusion in a shared working world
The model project "ZusammenArbeit. Inklusion in eine gemeinsame Arbeitswelt", or ZUSA for short, aims to comprehensively place job-seeking people with disabilities in work in the Erlangen and Erlangen-Höchstadt region. To ensure that inclusion does not remain an abstract social utopia, ZUSA strives for a change in perception.
Suitable participants are sustainably qualified by ZUSA and prepared for permanent company employment with work trials. In another area of action, ZUSA specifically addresses private and public employers and business associations in the region. The aim is to jointly explore individual paths and options for integrating people with disabilities into a company environment in the long term.
ZUSA sees itself as a contribution to implementing the UN
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The model project is being funded until 2018 by the German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs as part of the federal program for the "intensified integration and counseling of severely disabled people" using resources from the Equalization Fund.
