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.

She said: "If we’ve learnt anything from this crisis– the frontline isn’t just hospitals, care home and clinicis – its our carers too. Without them our health and care servcies would collapse. Thank you to all those providing care. " #stateofcaring

Care Minister @Helen_Whately outlines Government action to support carers during pandemic, including work carried out through the Carers Action Plan, and support over the longer term - "we are determined to protect carers and people receiving care the best we possibly can"

Our new research #CaringBehindClosedDoors found 81% of unpaid carers are providing more care due to the coronavirus outbreak. Read more about the impact of #COVID-19 on the millions of unpaid #carers here:
