The Coronavirus outbreak presents a major challenge to national, regional and local communities which are on the frontline in countering the disease. In the face of the COVID-19 virus support service providers are taking their own actions, to be able to continue to provide essential care & support services to those who need it most. This webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities of social care & support services in rural areas in Europe, by answering the following questions:
- What are the main challenges to the availability of care and support services in rural areas in Europe?
- How can service provision in rural areas be improved?
- How should legal frameworks and funding systems be adapted to recognize the difference between the ways in which services are organized in urban and rural areas?
