Across the EU there are divergent policies on people who use or have used drugs and alcohol. In terms of employability and employment opportunities for this group, practice and approaches vary greatly.
People who have a history of drug and alcohol problems, and those who are current problem drug users face significant social and economic inequalities and are marginalised within society particularly in terms of their education, training and employment.
Therefore, EAER project aims to:
- Deliver positive and long-lasting effects on policy and participating organisations through building more employability and employment opportunities for people who use or have used substances;
- Deliver positive and long-lasting effects on people participating in the programme through increased knowledge, skills, and motivation to improve services.
