The European confederation of industrial and service co-operatives (Cecop) has published a paper which highlights the sector’s contribution to tacking long-term unemployment.

The trade body highlighted that many of its member co-operatives operated in the field of labour integration of disadvantaged groups not just by providing jobs. It explained how social co-operatives within its network, such as those in Italy, invested in training and providing tailored jobs for people with specific needs, including those with disabilities or facing social exclusion. Italy alone has around 4,000 social co-operatives that facilitate labour integration, employing 60,000 people, 30% of them disadvantaged workers.
