Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The objectives of the Confederation shall be to represent the social and economic interests of families with children, in general, and large families, in particular, as the most appropriate environment for bringing up children, integrating them into society, and providing mutual support and solidarity among generations; as well as the promotion, development and unity of the movement of large family organisations.

For each member organisation, the term “large family” shall have the meaning determined in its Statutes or by the legislation of its respective country. Since this size is not the same in all member organisations, the Confederation shall in general consider a large family to be one that is raising three or more children.

The Confederation shall concentrate on activities that transcend national borders, and it shall not interfere with the national, regional or local activities of member organisations.

To achieve its purposes, the Confederation shall:

a) Represent its members on a European and international level. the case of large families on the European and international level.

b) Co-ordinate actions, and advice and guide members on the best way to meet their needs and reach their goals.

c) Promote co-operation with social and welfare activities for the benefit of large families.

d) Promote, co ordinate, co-operate and plan private initiatives of both business and non-profit organisations for the benefit of the family, particularly the large family.

e) Co-operate in defending and improving the rights granted to large families by European Union legislation.

f) Promote the protection of the large family through conferences, cultural events and publications.

g) Co-operate with other organisations that have similar, or partially similar, objectives on European and international levels.

h) Promote any other activity that, directly or indirectly, relates to the previous activities and results in benefiting large families as a whole or each family member individually.

The Confederation may, when the occasion arises:
