Eurocarers has organised different events on Supporting young carers in Europe: a study visit in Hamburg, in February 2016 (click here to read the press release) and, building on it, a workshop in Brussels in June 2016 (please find the report here). Those meetings have paved the way for the International Young Carers Conference held in Malmö in May 2017, as well as for Eurocarers advocacy work on the topic.
On 6th March, Eurocarers co-hosted a meeting of the European Parliament Informal Carers Interest Group on “Young carers – challenges and solutions”. The agenda is available here.
