@USGAO A huge thanks to colleagues at @CarersTrust @ManMetUni @Eurocarers_info @mytime_charity @CwlthSocWk @Nka_anhoriga and most of all @profsaulbecker and the incredible young carers involved for all of the work to make this conference possible.

@andy_mcgowan @iycc2024 Probably the most powerful, emotive and important conference i have been to in 25 years of working in the young carers sector. Thank you to @profsaulbecker and the young carers specifically as well as everybody else for 'showing up' and 'just being there ' to 'show you care'.

Here is part 2 - the young people only met on Tuesday, with even more inspired to get involved yesterday. They discussed, wrote, agreed and delivered such a clear, powerful message clearly stating what they want for all young carers. It was a privilege to be in the room #IYCC2024

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.

Eurocarers is involved in the following projects
