Participation of NASO in EASPD Standing Committee on Employment
On October 24, 2015, a meeting of the Standing Committee on Employment of the European Social Service Provider for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) was held. National Alliance for Social Responsibility (NASO) forms part of the Standing Committee with the ambition to take the subject of employability of persons with disabilities in the open labor market to the top of its activities. During the meeting, Mr. Georgiev, President of NASO, explained that there had been a normative change in Bulgaria related to the introduction of the term “supported employment” in the legislation of the country. In this respect, NASO will seek the support of EASPD in order to fully implement this service in Bulgaria through projects and related means. Additionally, the Standing Committee on Employment discussed various initiatives with its members and took decisions about the development of a work program for 2016.
