The Fundación Emplea is a non-profit NGO. Created in 2008, it strives to promote, with entrepreneurs, the practice and development of supported employment as the most efficient system in order for persons with disabilities and risking exclusion to gain access to paid employment and stability in the job market.
The foundation has the EFQM quality certification, and its employers represent more than 150 entities lending support services to collectivities in favor of job inclusion.
The Fundación Emplea works to promote supported work in Spain, South America and Europe. It is also committed to innovation and research with companies, people with disabilities and the entities applying supported employment. All of this while staying faithful to its basic principles of respect, solidarity and transparency.
Supported employment promotes integrated work and should elevate the persons concerned to active citizens, contributing, like others, to society, following the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN – 03.30.2007).
