Project Title

agricultural companies as providers of social services

Project description

In the project, farms with different structures and setups were accompanied intensively and with a high level of expertise by Mittweida University of Applied Sciences and supraregional partners in creating inclusive employment opportunities for people with disabilities as another service provider. Thus, an alternative employment offer to the workshop for people with disabilities can be created in the agricultural sector. Agricultural businesses are particularly well-suited for this purpose due to their versatile fields of activity and work structures.

The project was implemented through direct, intensive support of seven model farms during the four-year project period. In various regions of Saxony, the framework conditions necessary to develop a high-quality offer for people with disabilities were tested.

Results focusing on practiceorientation

Among other things, the project experiences were transferred into a handbook. This explains in detail how the Other Service Provider for farms can be put into practice - from the design of the workplaces and the necessary specialist staff to concept-development, costing and negotiation with the service provider.
