The European voice for informal carers

Save the date

International Young Carers Conference
Identify, listen and support

The international Young Carers Conference,
jointly organised by the Swedish Family Care Competence Centre, Linnaeus University and Eurocarers,
will take place in Brussels on 16-17 November 2020.

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.

Thank you Careum team for an enriching #youngcarersCH Conference! It was a pleasure to meet different stakeholders committed to empower #youngcarers. See you all on 16-17 November 2020, in Brussels, for the 3rd International Young Carers Conference https://eurocarers.org/2020-iycc/

The exchange among each other is important. This is reflected in the discussion with #youngcarers at the End of Project Conference hosted by the #Careum School of #Health. #youngcarersCH #carers @Eurocarers_info @youngcarersinfo @VilansNL @CarersTrust @anzianienonsolo

Malla Heino said that in Finland a common objection is 'Young carers should not exist' #youngcarersCH. What arguments can we move to challenge this position? Read more in the #Me_We policy briefs at https://me-we.eu/internal-resources/. The Swiss brieg is available in all national languages!
