About us

With fourteen portals, numerous publications, apps and seminars, REHADAT is the central independent information service for participation and inclusion in working life of people with disabilities in Germany. The information is aimed at those affected and all those who are committed to their participation in working life. All offers are barrier-free and accessible free of charge.

REHADAT is mainly aimed at German readers and takes into account German laws and institutions. That is why we offer only an excerpt of the information in English language as well.

REHADAT is a project of the German Economic Institute, funded by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS) from the equalization fund. See our video with subtitles in English.
