In the Red Cross of Pirot, on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, three focus group interviews were organised as part of the activities in the project “Addressing and preventing care needs through innovative community care centres (I-CCC)”, which is co-financed by the European Union and the Austrian Development Agency.

The aim of the focus group interviews was to map services and assess the needs for long-term care services in Pirot. Special attention in mapping services is paid to informal caregivers and the need to improve their skills related to providing care on the one hand, and on the other hand to develop services that will enable them to have a break during care (“respite services”).
