When @BorisJohnson pledged to ‘fix’ social care, is this what he had in mind? 500,000 people waiting for care and so few care workers that people lose out on 170,000 hours of social care a week. The job isn’t done, #SocialCareIsntFixed

#MIPAA20Rome Unpaid carers are the pillars of all health and social care ststems worldwide. They deserve more rights and better support! https://twitter.com/UNECE/status/1536612445485162503

Policy initiatives in Europe aimed at supporting unpaid carers are like „admiring a few brushstrokes of an unfinished painting“ says Stecy Yghemonos, Eurocarers Director. „Much more needs done to finish the bigger picture“ @Eurocarers_info @MIPAA20Rome @UNECE

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.

Eurocarers is involved in the following projects
