AGE, UNI Europa, ENNHRI on the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2018

On the occasion of the 2018 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, UNI Europa and AGE Platform Europe, together with the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) and the European Commission, organised in Brussels on 5th June, a joint workshop on “Working conditions in care: Implications for labour rights, quality of services and the dignity of older people”. For the first time at the European level, organisations of older persons and trade unions, together with other civil society organisations (including COFACE Families Europe), national human rights institutions, policymakers and researchers, gathered to explore the precariousness of the care workforce and how, as a result, the dignity of older persons needing care is at stake.
