The participation of young people with disabilities in the labour market in Norway is below ambitions (41-44 percent).

This project investigates the following up of young people (aged 18-29) who are disabled and who receive temporary work assessment benefits.

The organising principle of the study is the user-pathways, though will also include looking into how case-workers in the Labour and Welfare Administration (LWA) adapt to and implement the regulations and framework they operate within, as well as what contributes to or hinder collaboration between various actors in the support system around the young (LWA, health services, education and employers).

The research-group includes researchers from NTNU Social Research, SINTEF Digital, NTNU, and Oslo Met. Collaborative partners are the LWA Trøndelag and international experts in disability employment from the University of Sydney, Australia.
