COFACE Families Europe is happy to welcome NELFA, the Network of European LGBTIQ* Families Associations, as a supporting member.
NELFA works to ensure that children raised in LGBTIQ* families in Europe are granted the same rights as children from other families. NELFA encourages European governments to adopt legal systems and equal opportunity policies that do not discriminate against LGBTIQ* families, whether it be legally, financially, educationally or socially. NELFA also works to ensure the freedom of movement of LGBTIQ* families within the European Union without their family life being compromised by entering or settling in another member state.
With 24 associations representing 15 European countries and thousands of LGBTIQ* families, NELFA promotes the exchange of information among its members and assists in creating and developing LGBTIQ* families associations.
