SOLIDAR contribution to the European Commission Public Consultation

The European Commission (EC) launched a public consultation on service provision to the long-term unemployed to collect views and inputs from stakeholders and the wider public. SOLIDAR submitted its contribution to a selection of questions in the consultation, based on input and experiences from its member organisations who are delivering services to unemployed people to empower them to participate in society and the labour market. In the context of this consultation, long-term unemployed are considered as those that have been without a job for more than one year, but are actively looking for a job and are willing to accept if they are offered a job.
