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.

Full house this morning to learn about the great work of the rehab center of APCC (Cerebral Palsy Association), in the scope of the #DAREproject

Looking forward and proud to be speaking at the first conference on young carers in France later this year.

In its consultation for #EIF2019 @ofstednews removed #youngcarers as a group inspectors to pay special attention to. Ofsted must reinstate youngcarers so they continue to be identified by schools and get support they need to engage effectively at school:

#enhancefcn project marks #WorldHealthDay #HealthForAll. We need skilled health workers providing quality #PeopleCentredCare, and policymakers committed to investing in #primaryhealth #familynurse. @EASPD_Brussels @EU_Health @EU_Social.
