The 1st partnership meeting was held in Carpi, Italy on the 10 ann 11 of January 2019. The meeting was an opportunity for project partners to get to know each other, learn more about the respective national contexts and agree on the upcoming tasks foreseen by the work plan.
The main priority of CO.S.M.I.C is that of social inclusion since the project aims to support a target group which is at double risk of exclusion, discrimination and stigmatization: that of informal carers of migrant background. Indeed, migrant carers in common with carers more generally, work tirelessly in support of those they care for, often without recognition and to the detriment of their own health and well-being. On the other hand, this target group is known to experience unique challenges in accessing support services.
