25 years of Supported Employment Worldwide.
WASE is a network of persons and organizations with the aim to promote supported employment all over the world.
WASE started in 1995 and has since been promoting supported employment nation wide. In 2003 with help of the ILO, a special CD Rom and Handbook was made for developing countries and organizations who are interested in becoming involved in supported employment. WASE is also looking at quality in supported employment performance and has designed quality criteria. A new initiative is a quality mark for employers/companies with proven records in employing persons with a disability through supported employment..
