Supported Employment Initiatives

A range of supported/subsidized employment placement options are available, largely due to the high general unemployment rate in South Africa:

  • Sheltered work – i.e. work undertaken by persons with disabilities in workshops specifically established for that purpose. People working in sheltered workshops retain their social welfare benefits, typically a disability impairment allowance, and usually receive a small discretionary additional weekly payment from the work provider;
  • Integrative enterprises – sheltered workshops paying normal wages;
  • supported employment – a system of support for persons with disabilities in respect of ongoing employment in integrated settings; and
  • Open labour market employment
