About the project
YoungCare aims to promote strategies for relieving the situation of informal caregivers and the young dependent adults in need of their care (assistance to carry out normal activities or to protect their rights). This will be pursued along the following objectives:

Giving voice to the young dependent adults and their informal caregivers and letting them partake in measures that are designed to meet their desires and needs.


Offering these target groups a co-created learning tool on measures and possibilities to improve their quality of life;


Raising awareness of much-needed intervention measures among decision-makers at the political and associational levels.

Project Outputs

To reach the objectives identified above, the following project results will be produced:

A compendium on the desires and needs of dependent young adults, based on a literature study and narrative interviews with people in need of care or their informal caregivers in all partner countries. Besides facts and figures, it will illustrate gaps in the provision of services and impacts on the lives of those concerned by portraits and testimonials; in addition to this, it will provide practical knowledge.

An e-learning offer, focused on low-threshold access and on practical issues. Playful elements will be integrated into the learning units to make them attractive and interesting. Their contents will be co-produced with dependent young adults and their informal and/or formal caregivers.

Sharing and promotion activities, to ensure that the project results and content are sustained and reach as many addresses as possible.

Recommendations for policy-makers and formal caregivers.

Target groups

Direct target groups

  • Informal caregivers, as the majority of young dependent adults live with their families and relatives.
  • Volunteers that may be ready to support younger adults in need of care and their families.
