Carers Voices

The EuCHO Group

The EuCHO Group is a group co-run by unpaid Carers for the unpaid Carers of D&G. This is a quarterly group that gives unpaid Carers a platform to come together with provider organisations, receive information, connect with other Carers and enable the voice of unpaid Carers to influence the future direction of strategic interventions.
