Round Table Debate 'Grandparents as carers ? Trends and support services in Europe' - Meeting Notes

On 24 April 2013 in the European Parliament, Eurochild and AGE Platform Europe organised a round table debate on “Grandparents as carers – Trends and support services in Europe”, preceding the European Day of Solidarity between Generations.

Throughout 2012 Eurochild conducted an on-line survey through a wide range of NGOs and produced a report on the contribution of grandparents to families across Europe.
