The European voice for informal carers

EU renews commitment to a strong and resilient social Europe

The declaration emerging from the High-Level Conference on the European Pillar of Social Rights provides a broad framework, although with vague entry points for our forthcoming work, which is understandable given the upcoming election cycle…

As far as our sector is concerned, the declaration calls for “continued action to tackle gender segregation and to close the gender employment, pay, pension and care gaps and for necessary measures to eliminate gender stereotypes” and “strengthened coordination between the delivery of the Ageing Report, the Pension Adequacy Report and the Long-Term Care Report to ensure complementarity and coherence of monitoring at EU level“.

It also states that “While addressing existing and increasing needs in the health and long-term care sectors, a strong focus on prevention as well as adequate, equal and affordable access to care is key. Taking into account national contexts and division of competences, action could include addressing workforce needs, with attention to training and working conditions and support for collective bargaining in the care sector.
