COFACE as the
Confederation of Family Organisations in the European Union, brings
together a large number of civil society organisations with the aim of
giving a voice to all families and representing the issues most
important to them at the European level.
We monitor closely the implementation of family
and social policies in the Member States, and formulate together joint
policy objectives at European level.
We advocate policies of non-discrimination and
equal opportunities between persons and between family forms, and
specifically support policies aimed at increasing equality between women
and men, with a special focus on reconciliation policies between work,
care and family life.
The issues we are working on range from family and
social policies, migration, the family dimension of disability, to
safer internet, protection of families as vulnerable consumers,
improving childcare and health services, to the impact of the economic
crisis on families, and addressing the needs of the most vulnerable
Our latest campaigns:
Cyberbullying : there is a way out!
Children have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, physically or mentally, they have a right to privacy.
In Europe, statistics and figures show, that about one in four children experience cyberbullying at some point in their lives.
Funded by the European Union Daphne programme, as part of the #DeleteCyberbullying project
, COFACE and its partners want to raise awareness about the issue of cyberbullying, what can be done to prevent and tackle it.
Join us, take a stand against cyberbullying and speak out for our children's right to be safe. Images speak louder than words. Show your commitment to #DeleteCyberbullying by sharing this video.
