Caring in times of crisis: a dialogue UK-Chile

The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed the urgency of addressing the “care crisis”; while care needs increased, Who takes care for those who care for us? And how can we address the care deficit provoked, or reinforced, by the crisis? This project proposes to learn from those who have been active in the some of the most deprived areas supporting and taking care of unpaid care givers, moving from self-help practices to policy-impact work.
