COFACE’s mission is to contribute to better policy making at EU level to make a positive change in the lives of the millions of families living in Europe. To this end, our advocacy is organised in three areas of action:

Mainstreaming: Providing a voice for families in the EU political arena to mainstream the family perspective as far as possible. EU politics cannot disregard this fundamental part of the nature of being human.
Linking up: We strive to strengthen EU social and employment policies, ensuring links between local grassroots organisations, national family policies, and EU realities. We also facilitate links across EU countries, driving innovation through transnational exchanges.
Monitoring: We monitor the positive and negative impacts of EU policies and legislation beyond the social/family policy fields (see other policy fields on the website)
