Employment offer for citizens with disabilities - SAABU

SAABU offers sheltered employment and activities and social opportunities within the disability area.

You can apply for protected employment if your functional impairment is so significant that you cannot have a regular job or a job supported in another way by the Jobcentre, and you have been awarded an early retirement pension.

SAABU has a number of versatile and exciting employment opportunities, where you have the opportunity to develop professionally, socially and personally, so that you can increase your independence.

We work on the basis of a job plan, where you have the opportunity to pursue your wishes and goals for your working life.

Who can use SAABU?

We offer employment and clarification courses for people with developmental disabilities. 

We also offer clarification courses for citizens in resource courses and activity-ready cash benefit recipients.

Finally, at SAABU Østerlund we offer activity and togetherness for you who need activating support and care. The offer includes activities, stimulation and training in various forms.

What is activating support and care?

The offer is for you who have the most extensive disabilities, where we always take your individual needs as our starting point.

We use play, games, singing, music, movement, reading aloud and many other activities to strengthen your personal and social skills.

We have different rooms where there is the possibility of shielding if you can not tolerate too many sensory impressions or too many social contacts.
