Results of the 2019 Call for Caregiver Projects
Crédit Agricole Assurances’ 9th national Call for Caregiver Projects focused on three issues: young caregivers, caregivers and employment, and caregivers’ health. Ten applications were selected from the 112 received, for a total of €150,000 in funding.
Since 2010, more than 150 organisations have been supported in this way, receiving support worth over €2 million in total. For the second consecutive year, Crédit Agricole Assurances decided to focus its call for projects on three increasingly important issues associated with the provision of support for caregivers: young caregivers, caregivers and employment and caregivers’ health.
