Care Alliance Ireland are passionate about making research and other publications accessible to all stakeholders involved in supporting family carers.
Most of our publications are widely available in various hubs online, including here on our website, and on Open Access repositories such as Lenus.
In some instances, we do publish in more traditional academic formats, such as journal articles or books. These can be difficult to access due to publisher restrictions.
Below is a list of our traditional publications, many of which are written in collaboration with academics and others in the sector. If you have any difficulties in accessing these links, please conact our Senior Policy & Research Officer Zoe, who will happily help.
