Democratisation of care work

Barcelona is a pioneering city in implementing feminist policies in one of the areas that creates the most discrimination and inequality: care work.

Tasked with a clear transformational purpose, Caring City aims to be a tool to help bring recognition to the social value of care work, and to ensure the right to care and be cared for in decent, quality conditions.

What is happening?

Most of the time spent on care work in Barcelona falls to families, mainly women, and without pay.

The provision of paid care is known for its feminisation, high job insecurity and large proportion of immigrant women.

The overload of care work is having a negative impact on the physical and mental health and the life trajectories of carers.

What do we want to do?

We are launching a programme with 68 initiatives to highlight the importance of care work, to socialise the responsibility of care work, to ensure decent working conditions for workers, entities and individuals providing care work, to improve the quality of the services and to empower the people receiving or providing care.
