Overarching messages

We have knowledge, now we need to use it and upscale it to ensure social rights are fully implemented equally across the EU.

Our New Deal for Families of Today (2019) and recommendations to address the COVID-19 impact on families (2020) contain the general direction needed to support families of today.

COFACE has developed a series of policy, service and campaign tools over the last years, and is in a position to boost implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) working closely with EU and national authorities.
