Dear colleagues,

The programme is available here.

The event is open to the public and participation is free of charge. As the number of places is limited, please register quickly at

All information and further notes may also be found on the conference page.

What awaits you at the conference ?
Many young people support a family member or someone close to them who needs help due to an illness, accident, addiction, impairment or old age. These Young Carers and Young Adult Carers, provide essential care and support to support their family or close ones whilst continuing their education and vocational training.

In Switzerland, national data has up until now been limited. Addressing this lack of data the conference will provide an opportunity to present the results of the SNSF research project on children, adolescents and young adults as carers in Switzerland with professionals, international experts and young carers themselves.

We look forward to meet you personally at our conference!
Kind regards

Prof. Dr. Agnes Leu and Team
