‘At work’ is a multidisciplinary vocational rehabilitation intervention aimed at empowering young adults with physical disabilities and supporting them to find a suitable job (i.e. attuned to their physical abilities). The intervention starts with an interview to identify co-existing problems in daily functioning. Based on this exploration specific treatment goals are set. Thereafter, the six group sessions start, facilitated by an occupational therapist and a job coach. During the group sessions, information about work-related topics is provided and group discussions take place. Furthermore the participants practice to do a job-interview.
After the group sessions an individual coaching trajectory starts, in which individual needs could be addressed. The job coach searches together with the young adult for work placement opportunities in order to develop vocational skills, work routines, and work experience. Job coaching on the job is provided when the participant has found a paid or unpaid job.

Participants in the control group receive usual care. Usual care can consist of a regular reintegration programme or no care at all. Thus, a variety of several social and medical co-interventions are expected in the control group.
- Primary outcome1. Work-related self-efficacy (Self-efficacy for work)
- Secondary outcome1. Work status (PCQ)
2. Distance to employment (Level of participation)
3. Attitude towards self-management at work (ASE)
4. General self-efficacy (GSES)
5. Health related quality of life (SF-36)

Prospective data collection take place at the start of the intervention and at 12 months follow up. The primary outcome measure is work-related self-efficacy.
