The Valueable network is the European network of socially responsible companies of the hospitality sector. It has been created within the Erasmus + "On my work" project, financed by the European Commission in 2014-2017.

During those years, a group of disability associations, universities, hotels and one foundation for equal opportunities designed, developed and tested the three tools, which are now promoted by the network:

- an app for the trainees/workers with intellectual disabilities,

- videos for a proper relationship between people with intellectual disabilities and their colleagues,

- and e-learning for managers of the hospitality sector aimed at certifying the efforts of the company towards job inclusion.

The first labels were released in December 2016 to Portuguese and Italian hospitality companies and now the Valueable network counts more than 100 members, from Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.

The app On My Own is available on Google play and Apple store and videos can be downloaded from YouTube.

App for Valueable workers

An application dedicated to the people with intellectual disabilities, on training/at work. It illustrates tasks and provides tools and resources useful in the workplace.

Videos for Valueable workmates

They are addressed to employers and employees and provide examples about correct relationships and behaviours between people with intellectual disability and their co-workers.

E-learning for Valueable managers

4 modules about how to include people with intellectual disabilities in the workplace: attitudes, methods and tools to make the best of it.


Valueable handing opportunities is an international certification given to those companies that belong to the European network of socially responsible hotels and restaurants, comply with the specific national legislation and offer opportunities of professional advancement to people with intellectual disabilities, by providing internships and/or job opportunities according to the rules of the Valueable Code of Conduct. 

 There are 3 different labels corresponding to different degrees of commitment:


The bronze version certifies specific conditions and actions aimed to include without any discrimination and the provision of internships to people with intellectual disabilities.


The silver version requires a further engagement: fixed term contract (minimum 3 months) or permanent job for at least one worker with intellectual disability.


The golden version is granted to those employers who hire at least one worker with an intellectual disability and act as ambassadors of the Valueable trademark.
