We are pleased to announce that the EPIONI Erasmus+ KA1 project entitled “Educating Informal Carers” was approved by the Greek National Agency IKY. This project will offer training to EPIONI Greek Carers Network Board Members in effective management of EU funded projects. It will also facilitate the exchange of best practices and the understanding of the European dimension through study visits in various organizations with considerable experience in the support of informal caregivers.
The project will train carers' representatives from Greece and facilitate the transfer of know-how from organizations like Care Alliance (Ireland), Compagnie des Aidants (France), ANT (Italy), and Eurocarers (Belgium). The participants in shadow visits will learn new ways to stimulate the audience of EPIONI workshops and events and practice new skills for planning and managing annual educational projects for informal caregivers.
The "Educating Informal Caregivers" project will enable us to build on acquired skills and experiences and be in a position to disseminate our results and extend collaboration with other EU countries.
The project will kick-off in July 2018 and will run until July 2020.
We would like to thank all our partners for supporting our initiative and we look forward to a fruitful and lasting collaboration.
