Communication adopted by the European Commission on 7 September 2022, setting out a strategy aimed at ensuring quality, affordable and accessible care services across the European Union (EU), and improving the situation for both care receivers and the people caring for them, professionally or informally.
This strategy sets an agenda to improve the situation for both carers and care receivers. It calls for boosting access to quality, affordable and accessible care services and improving working conditions and work-life balance for carers. It aims to help making the principles on access to good quality and affordable care of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) a reality and contribute to achieving the headline targets on employment and poverty reduction for 2030 across the European Union (EU).
The European Care Strategy was adopted by the European Commission on 7 September 2022. It was accompanied by two draft Recommendations on the revision of the Barcelona targets on early childhood education and care, and on access to affordable high-quality long-term care.
