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.

We are extremely grateful to @aeldresagen for hosting our General Assembly in their great premises in #Copenhagen.

"The ESF is a most valuable tool to support informal carers and support their upskilling" said Emma Toledano Laredo, Head of Unit, DG EMPL, in response to the presentation of the recommendations from the workshop "Supporting and empowering carers" #ESFTP19

Visual presentation of the discussions in our workshop on 'Supporting and empowering carers' at the ESF Transnational Cooperation conference . The conclusion is clear : highlight the role of the carers and make them a target group in the next ESF+ ! #ESFTP19 @COFACE_EU
