The European voice for informal carers

Kick-off meeting of the WELL CARE project in Brussels 

On the 7 and 8 February, Eurocarers participated in the first consortium meeting of the newly funded Horizon European project WELL CARE.

WELL CARE is a transdisciplinary and participative project in which informal and professional carers, researchers, NGOs together with expertise and stakeholder organisations within health and social care, psychology, sociology and gerontology work together to strengthen supports available for improving the mental wellbeing and resilience of informal carers and long-term care (LTC) workers.

The project focuses on strengthening care partnerships, understood as the coordination, integration, and mutual recognition of care and caring activities performed by informal carers and long-term care workers, in a vision of integrated LTC.

The WELL CARE project will ultimately develop a set of support measures to address the mental health needs of both informal carers and long-term care  workers, thus sustaining and enabling a vision of care partnerships between these two groups.

Over these two dynamic days, participants seized the opportunity to deepen mutual understanding, refine coordination strategies for the initial work packages, and engage in fruitful discussions with the Project Adviser from the Health and Digital Executive Agency. We are looking forward to contributing to the work of this partnership, in which Eurocarers is particularly responsible for Communication, dissemination and exploitation.


WELL CARE is a 48-month project coordinated by the Swedish Family Care Competence Centre (Nka).
