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.

Die Frist für unsere Umfrage zu den Auswirkungen von COVID auf Pflegende Angehörige ist bis zum 7. Februar 2021 verlängert. Nehmen Sie sich bitte ein paar Minuten Zeit, um unseren Fragebogen auszufüllen:

Nous vous sollicitons pour répondre à une enquête sur les conséquences de la pandémie sur les aidants. L'enquête est organisée par @Eurocarers_info
Le but de cette initiative est de documenter et d’analyser l’impact de l’épidémie sur la santé des aidants.

🚨 📢 Our Made in Social Europe exhibition is a collection of 19 inspiring projects across 20 countries all striving to achieve a socially just and fair Europe for all! Check it out & help us in #BuildingSocialEurope! 📢🚨
