Independent / Supported Living

  • Supported Living Report (PDF) and Summary (PDF) (2011)
  • In 2003, KNPD commissioned Mr Gordon Cordina, economist, to carry out research on the financial dimension of supported living for disabled persons (PDF), especially in the supported employment sector. This research proposes a scheme through which disabled jobseekers are given financial assistance which they can use to find and maintain employment. This above report and suggested scheme are explained in the executive summary (PDF). CRPD formerly KNPD is currently working on implementing this scheme. As a first step, a meeting was held so that all interested parties, especially those interested in such a scheme, could give their reaction to the proposal and discuss it together.
