Providing online support services to informal carers, care professionals and employers across Europe
On 6 and 7 May 2015 Eurocarers and INRCA will launch their web platform in Brussels. These online support services have been developed as part of the INNOVAGE project to provide support to informal carers across the EU who experience a substantial physical, psychological and financial burden.
The team from INCRA and Eurocarers have developed a multilingual web platform addressing the most relevant informal carers’ needs, to be implemented in all 27 EU member states with both common and national-specific services. The platform includes not only contents related to caregiving activities and coping strategies, but also interactive tools allowing informal carers and other target groups (i.e. care professionals and employers of working carers) to communicate, share their experiences and support each other.
The event aims to initiate the national activities and bring together representatives from the involved organizations as well as stakeholders and decision-makers in order to launch the web platform for informal carers and present its added values for carers, care professionals and employers.
