The HelpCare project is an Erasmus+ funded project that the Faculty’s research centre, the South East European Research Centre (SEERC) joined as a research partner in 2016. The main objective was to identify the training needs and the condition that can lead to the “professionalization” of long term care, namely the delivery of care in high quality from formal or informal caregivers. Mr Pavlidis, Lecturer at the Psychology Department of the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield, CITY College, and researcher in SEERC, presented to 30 commissioners of care deriving from various parts of Greece the research findings of the project, as well as analyzed the use of several guides and tools that were developed to train formal and informal caregivers in providing care effectively and with more confidence. Mr Pavlidis stated:“This event was an excellent opportunity to present the findings and the outputs of the HelpCare project, as well as to receive feedback, comments, and valuable insight for the challenges that care providers face in their efforts to provide care in high quality in Greece. The event produced interesting discussion and strengthened a network that is committed to the delivery of care in professional standards.”
