The first S.IN.CA.L.A Partner Meeting took place in Tallinn, Estonia on 13 and 14 November 2018. It was great meeting everyone face to face. Ivar representing our Estonian partner, MTU EEsti Omastehooldus, hosted the meeting. All of the partner countries made presentations as to their plans for developing the different outputs. It was a very informative and marked the beginning of a great and worthwhile project that will hopefully benefit family carers in the countries involved but also the wider European family.
