The Regional Agency also focuses on the possibilities of cooperation between people with and without disabilities in a company as an important current labour market policy issue. It also promotes the participation of people with disabilities in the labour market.
The Regional Agency shows interested stakeholders in the region which examples and ways of inclusion for good cooperation between people with and without disabilities already exist in Münsterland during talks with employers and company visits to various integration companies in the districts of Münsterland and the city of Münster.
With the inclusion cheque, good ideas and activities are supported locally with the cheque. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia funds up to 300 inclusive projects each year and thus supports the inclusion of people with disabilities locally in an uncomplicated and unbureaucratic way. Associations, organisations or initiatives can now apply for a lump sum of 2,000 euros for their activities in North Rhine-Westphalia. All applications can easily be submitted online at www.soziales.web.nrw.de.
The selection of the financially supported projects depends on the receipt of the application. So the sooner you apply, the better your chances of receiving an inclusion cheque.
