Joint letter to the new EP COVID Committee

AGE EPSU EDF Joint letter COVID-19 Committee

(May 18 2022) Earlier this week a joint letter by the Secretaries-General of AGE and EPSU and the President of EDF was sent to the Members of the European Parliament in the newly established COVI committee.

The three organisations co-signing the letter have been successfully campaigning for this EP committee.

In the letter, the representatives of older persons, persons with disabilities and care workers call on the Special Committee and all of its members to comprehensively analyse the shortcomings in the care continuum that pre-existed and persist in the care sector. The Committee should develop recommendations to ensure that the rights of persons in need of care and support – including older persons and persons with disabilities – as well as the workers providing care and support, are respected and strengthened.
