About Us

The Carer’s Union aims to change the position of carers within our (i.e. Czech) legislation. Care recipients are concerned about the protection of carers, strengthening the rights of carers and improving the situation of carers as well. Less exhausted, calmer and financially better secured carer means better chance of more relaxed care. More relaxed care is also a prevention of the risk of sudden termination of care due to the exhaustion of the carer.

Changes in the status of citizens with disabilities are the aim of sufficient number of other organizations with years of experience, whereas nobody had yet seriously and systematically dealt with the situation of carers.

We believe that not only carers, but our society as a whole needs changes in the position of carers. Citizens from among the general public who never provided care have often no idea who a long-term carer is. Some think that it is a mother on maternity leave. Others believe that long-term carers are very well paid for their care, that they are doing it for the money, which they take advantage of. Others will tell you that the carers decided to provide care on their own, so what do they want.

We believe it is necessary to explain to the public the carer issues in order to improve the way of thinking and perception of carers and their importance for society.
