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 looking forward to celebrating the inaugural European Carers Day on October 6th @Eurocarers_info @CarersDay @CarersIreland @The_Wheel_IRL @Carmichael_IRL @IACO_Carers #CarersDay_EU #WeAreCarers_EU

"What about the thousands of family carers who are caring 24/7 without essential respite & day care services? What about carer burnout?... where is the plan to address the crisis in tens of thousands of family homes."

Webinar, 6 Oct. / Together with our @Homes4LifeH2020 partners we will be holding a #EURegionsWeek virtual workshop on age-friendly #housing and present the new Homes4Life EU Certification Scheme for #Ageing in Place. More info & registration:

"It is vital teachers recognise the signs of a young carer and understand how best to support their needs."

We teamed up with @childrensociety to produce guidance for teachers on how to support #youngcarers in their classrooms 👉 #ukedchat

Thank you to @FatFace who are donating 100% of the profits from their new range of sustainable face coverings to Carers UK. Their support helps us continue to provide vital information, advice and support to carers.
