The Erasmus+ funded “COSMIC” programme is pleased to launch the multilingual Informative Booklets for migrant informal carers. These brochures describe who the caregiver is and help the reader through some short questions to recognize whether he/she’s a caregiver or not. Furthermore, by examining what the responsibilities and weight of this figure are, particular attention is paid to family caregivers of foreign origin, who must face further barriers.
The programme is co-ordinated by Pårørendealliansen (PAN) Norway, and delivered in partnership with 4 European partners, namely: Anziani e non solo società cooperativa sociale (Italy), KMOP – Kentro Merimnas Oikogeneias Kai Paidiou (Greece), Associazione C’ENTRO (Italy), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia).
In detail, to help migrant carers to easily find out useful information regarding available services and at the same time overcome language barriers, the countries actively involved in the project consortium made available the informative leaflet in different translations, all downloadable here: https://cosmicproject.eu/downloads/.
