On the 19th October 2016, Eurocarers took part in the conference organised by the European Parliamentary Group of the European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) on the subject: "Carers in Europe: Labour Rights and Human Rights" held at the European Parliament in Brussels.
The conference specifically focused on the right to care and be cared for as well as on the common challenges facing paid and family carers. Spanish, Irish and Greek cases were also presented. The event was an opportunity to present the work of the Eurocarers network, highlight the situation of carers in Europe and convey our messaging about the need to provide carers with a comprehensive package of support measures.
