The European voice for informal carers

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.

"Some of the most important people in cancer care are the most below the radar" Read the @POLITICOEurope article on Caring for Cancer Carers: https://t.co/YzyE3CKexT Thanks @swheaton for featuring the work of @Eurocarers_info and its #Cancertoolkit

“Informal care providers are very important partners of the state” and “they need to be able to access respite to have some time off” @tatanaofficial talks about her work with #carers in the Czech Republic 🇨🇿 and there are so many parallels I recognise from the UK 🇬🇧
