Support social inclusion and engagement of young carers by adopting a whole family approach
EU Erasmus + Programme
Diakonisches Werk Berlin Stadtmitte e.V.
TOGETHER project aims to support social inclusion and engagement of young carers in Germany, Italy, Greece and UK by helping young carers and professionals to adopt a whole family approach, where: members of the household (including the care-recipient) are encouraged to communicate openly about the illness and caring; the condition of the care-recipients are explained clearly to the younger members of the family; helping relationship building within the family; professionals are encouraged to take a whole-family approach when working with care-recipients.
Our ultimate goal is to have an impact on families where there are caring responsibilities and where there is a young member, in order to prevent / reduce negative impacts on him/her, as well as improving his/her well-being, social inclusion and community engagement.
