Eurocarers is the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, irrespective of the particular age or health need of the person they are caring for. Our network currently brings together 71 carers’ organisations as well as relevant research & development organisations from 26 countries – a unique combination that enables evidence-based advocacy. These organisations are active at international, national and regional levels. For a membership overview, please visit http://www.eurocarers.org.
Our collective efforts seek to ensure that the existing and growing care needs of the European population are addressed in a universal and equitable way and that the essential contribution of unpaid/informal carers in the provision of care is valued, recognised and supported in order to prevent the negative impact of care on carers themselves (in terms of access to employment and education, social inclusion and poverty, health outcomes, etc.)
