After surveying the needs and expectations of carers in 7 European Regions, the project “ACT! For dependent people” has now entered its core phase: developing specific tools to support and harmonise the action of all subjects involved with caring for dependent people: professionals, family members, volunteers and active citizens. Project partners have met in Slovakia to discuss the merits of such tools, to be developed in the coming months by Corsican partner ID Formation. During the last phase of the project, the tools produced will first be piloted in the same Regions where the preliminary study was conducted, and ultimately disseminated beyond regional boundaries.
