March 2016: The baseline study “Informal caring and learning opportunities” is out!
This report presents an overview of support services available for informal carers in the European Union, with a particular focus on learning opportunities.
The report is based on research including a literature review, a survey answered by 36 organisations, as well as 30 succinct interviews. The report identifies the most pressing needs and expectations in terms of learning opportunities for informal carers. It provides a range of references of relevant initiatives at local, regional, national and international levels.
The report concludes by confirming the relevance of the objectives and method of the project TRACK, and pointing out the learning of existing initiatives and the challenges to be addressed.
