Who cares?” Results of the stocktaking study on the challenges and needs of family carers in Europe

Dates: 
30-11-2017
Location: 
Brussels, Belgium

At the COFACE Families Europe’s breakfast event Who cares?” Results of the stocktaking study on the challenges and needs of family carers in Europe, we will present the results of our data collection on the needs of family carers and good examples of policies from different EU Member States.

With more than 1,000 answers from family carers from 16 European countries, the study provides better understanding of the situation in Europe and offers policy recommendations to better meet their needs and tackle their social exclusion.

The event is co-hosted by MEP Olga Sehnalova (S&D) and MEP Marian Harkin (ALDE) and brings together high-level policy makers from the European Commission and Member States, representatives of non-governmental organisations, and family carers with lived experience.
