People with disabilities continue to face extensive challenges and a wide range of barriers in their place of work. However, today’s technological developments contribute significantly towards inclusion and reduce certain barriers in the field of employment.
Facilitating work life for individuals with disability scheme is a grant to support people having a disability who work in the private sector. Employers and self-employed people can apply for this grant towards the cost of adapting or making the workplace more accessible for employees with disabilities. The supported projects must address the needs of employees currently employed or due to be employed by the employer.
The aid under this scheme will be awarded in the form of a cash grant and will cover 90% of incurred eligible costs up to a maximum grant of €10,000 for every project.
Applications will be available through the Corporation's Client Portal during the last week of October.
