The European voice for informal carers

EUROCARERS is the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, irrespective of their age or the particular health and care need of the person they are caring for.

Our aim is to advance the issue of informal care at both national and EU levels by:

  • RAISING AWARENESS OF THE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION MADE BY CARERS to health and social care systems and the economy as a whole, and of the need to safeguard this contribution;
  • ENSURING THAT EU AND NATIONAL POLICIES TAKE ACCOUNT OF CARERS, i.e. promote social inclusion of carers, the development of support services for carers, enable them to remain active in paid employment and maintain a social life.

Eurocarers defines a carer as a person who provides – usually – unpaid care to someone with a chronic illness, disability or other long lasting health or care need, outside a professional or formal framework.

After the Work-Life Balance Directive has been formally adopted by the EPSO Council yesterday, Eurocarers together with a coalition of NGOs asks the Governments to move towards swift transposition.

It is time to make family carers a target group of the #ESF and ESF+. Together with @Eurocarers_info COFACE organised a workshop on the use of European Structural & Investment Funds to support family/informal #carers. More on the discussed issues here:

Everyone can live independently - no matter our respective abilities! - if environments are adapted. Standards are a powerful tool to ensure dwellings, buildings, venues are accessible.
