Vocational Rehabilitation and Inclusion

This research unit has developed, and now maintains, updates and expands a wide range of information resources for maximising the potential of workers with disabilities.

Download Overview

Practical information and materials for use in the workplace are brought together in portals on the internet where they are available to the general public. The project is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.

The website rehadat.de contains more than 100,000 items of information. In addition to details of assistive devices, the site offers many examples of successful vocational integration. Numerous addresses facilitate the search for contacts and institutions offering advice on all aspects of training, workplace organisation and integration. The literature portal contains details of publications and links to full text sources online. Access is provided to the most important legislation and legal decisions on the subject of disability together with information about sheltered workshops for people with disabilities and further training courses for those working in rehabilitation. Other portals give details of research proposals and statistics on rehabilitation and the participation of people with disabilities.
