Pårørendealliansen (PAN) (Project coordinator) Norway
is an umbrella organization for informal Carers and all that matters to them. PAN was founded in 2014 but our work started in 2016, when we were given means to do a Carer survey. We got 3.127 answers in that survey and it brought a lot of competence to where informal carers are having trouble and what they wish could help them more. The Survey was based on the Carers UK State of caring.
We have now done our 2nd survey for 2017 with 6.029 answers. We see this as a result of our network and ability to reach out and meet meet carers where they are – in social media and organizations.
The 2 employees in PAN have background from Eldercare and Mental Health Care and are experienced leaders and managers from business as well as NGOs. The board members supply with experience from Young Carers and addiction, as well as from the area of stroke, cancer and chronic diseases.
In 2018 we opened up for member organizations to join under the umbrella. In just 8 weeks we have gotten 14 organizations to join, representing the number of about 540.000 people. We have a goal of 25 organizations for 2018.
