This evaluation project examined 60 projects that received funding from the Heritage Fund for the years 1994 - 2012. All projects were aimed at people with disabilities who experienced major obstacles to reach, get and keep a job. The main part of the projects is run by disabled people themselves. There is up till now no comprehensive evaluation of efforts to increase opportunities for people with disabilities to obtain and keep a job where user organizations are a key player. Therefore, this assessment can make an important contribution to our knowledge of what is preventing and helping these people to enter the labor market.
