Policies to facilitate the combination of work and family life are essential for families to benefit from sufficient financial resources, available quality services, and adequate time arrangements in order to enjoy their family life in dignity. Work-life balance is at the very core of COFACE’s work,  with a focus on three key areas of action:

Time arrangements: promoting different types of leave (maternity, paternity, parental, carers).
Services: advocating for access to affordable and quality services (different forms of childcare, but also long-term care services).
Gender equality: fostering gender equality and female labour force participation through a variety of actions (policy, research, enterprise).
