Care 2 Work Kick Off Meeting – 30th June, London

The IARS International Institute hosted the kick-off meeting of its 2 year EU funded Care 2 Work (C2W) Programme on Tuesday 30th June 2015 at the Canada Water Culture Space.  The programme target one of the most marginalized communities in Europe, that of the Black and Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) young carers with a view to break the cycle of poverty and multiple disadvantage that they face, and to support them to achieve a successful transition from caring to adulthood.

The programme will be delivered in partnership with 3 European partners with long standing experience in engaging with marginalized and disadvantaged young people namely  Anziani e Non Solo (Italy), Linnaeus University  (Sweden)  and the Family and Childen Care Centre (Greece) under the leadership of the IARS International Institute.

The programme aims to generate and pilot new knowledge on the needs of BAME young carers with an ultimate goal of achieving institutional and cultural change in the UK and Europe. The first phase of the programme will involve rigorous fieldwork research with young BAME carers and professionals and service providers who are working directly with such groups.
