The aim of this support is to help and secure a disabled person in his or her training path. The aid is intended for people who are beneficiaries of "employment obligation" of disabled persons (under Article L5212-13 of the French Labour Code) or who have applied for recognition of their disability, engaged in distance learning, including trainees in vocational rehabilitation centres.
The support can be up to €500. It is intended to cover the capital expenditure needed to continue the training cycle. Expenditure may be reimbursed on production of supporting documents.
