Project Summary

This study is targeted at all European informal/family/unpaid carers providing care to people due to their physical or mental illness, disability or old age. Through an online survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8B5NBJR?lang=en), it aims to document and analyse how the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted on informal carers’ health, caregiving situation, support networks, access to health and social services, working status, work-life balance and finances – among other aspects. It also seeks to collect carers’ views and recommendations on how to better support informal cares in times of a pandemic.
