About 4.5 million inhabitants live in the Śląskie Voivodeship. The unemployed constitute less than 2% of the total population. The percentage of the unemployed and long-term unemployed constantly decreases. Despite these statistics, the groups in which a high unemployment rate has been identified are still long-term unemployed (44.2% of all unemployed) and people with disabilities (5 764 people).
During implementation of the IN SITU project people with disabilities, as well as long-term unemployed young and elderly regional citizens will work with experts on social innovation in a form of social initiatives and social enterprises aimed at supporting disabled people both in everyday life and workplace.
