To offer new opportunities and innovative instruments to adult women with disabilities in order to improve their qualification

COCEMFE SEVILLA leads the European project Erasmus Plus Ready Women, in which 10 entities from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and Latvia will work as a strategic partnership.

The general objective of the READY WOMEN project is to offer new opportunities and innovative instruments to adult women with disabilities in order to improve their qualification and, consequently, their employability and integration in the labour market, mainly through training actions related to new sources of employment and emerging sectors.

Among its main actions are:

  • Increasing the self-confidence of women with physical disabilities;
  • Study to identify the relationship between women with physical disabilities and employment opportunities;
  • Detect best practices in the inclusion of women with disabilities in the labour market;
