The Family Research Network (FRN) was launched in 2008. Into its 8th year running, the thirteenth forum, on the 27th April 2015, considered the impact of informal care-givers in developing resilience in the family. In particular, the presentations at the forum focused on research that shows the significant challenges faced by the families of individuals suffering from chronic illnesses: long-term care-giving pressures, increased financial and psychological stress and varying levels of social and community support.
