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 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.

Another strong report from Lords Economic Committee on the need for urgent funding to deal with the #carecrisis - it rightly recognises the intolerable pressure placed on families and friends as a result shortage of care using @CarersUK evidence. @candsalliance
