Social measures for target groups: disability and old age

Employment and social policy

Disability is a multifaceted reality. It affects some individuals throughout their existence and others only at the end of their life. In general, individuals who have reached old age or are suffering from a handicap are not equal in terms of living and working conditions. In addition, the European Union is faced with an unprecedented demographic upheaval which will have major repercussions on society as a whole. At European level, the Institutions help the Member States to create a society that is accessible to all by strengthening cooperation with and between them and promoting the collection, exchange and processing of comparable data, statistics and good practice.
