Welcome (many languages)


Welcome to information on the 1st World Conference on Supported Employment – “Employment for All - A Global Perspective” which will be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from 14 – 16 June 2017.

This conference is the first of its kind being a collaboration of partners and employment specialist from around the World.  The conference will aim to challenge our thinking and perspectives on how we work with people considered “far from the labour market” perhaps we should be thinking the “labour market is far from the people” and that may change how we do business. 

The conference aims to look at employment practices from around the world and to try and ensure that we all aim for best practice going forward.  We need to create an equal platform for entry into employment no matter who you are or where you live.  Employment for all – A Global Perspective will create the platform for these important issues and challenges we therefore invite you to be part of this unique experience in Belfast.   Let us be part of ensuring equality of opportunity, equality of rights, and let’s influence equality within policy but most importantly to change attitudes for a more inclusive Society across the Globe.

We therefore extend a warm welcome to you all to participate in this event – the first of its kind.  

Please come and join us in this conference – be part of the future!!!
