Listening to Carers - A Synopsis of Points Raised

Posted on Wednesday 30 June 2021

On Tuesday June 29th 2021, family carers from across Ireland joined Family Carers Ireland for an online discussion about their experience of caring through the COVID crisis, the challenges they face now as we begin to emerge from the pandemic and their hopes and priorities for the future as we look forward to life after lockdown.

We thank the carers who contributed to the discussion, including our three panel speakers, for their openness and honesty. The feedback raised during the meeting will inform Family Carers Ireland’s policy, research and lobbying efforts as well as helping direct our carer supports and services. The information has also been shared with members of the newly established All Party Oireachtas Interest Group on Family Carers who are currently developing their work programme.

The following paper provides a summary of the points raised by family carers during the meeting.
