Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Caritas Europa is the umbrella organisation of the European network of 49 Caritas member organisations, working in 46 European countries.

Caritas Europa focuses its activities on policy issues related to poverty and social inequality, migration and asylum within all countries of Europe, and issues of emergency humanitarian assistance and international development throughout the world.

With regard to these issues, the organisation develops policies for political advocacy at European level as well as at national level. The organisation is strongly involved in supporting the activities of its Member Organisations and those in the wider Caritas Internationalis confederation.

In a profound commitment to fight poverty and social exclusion and to promote human development, social justice and sustainable social systems in Europe and throughout the world, Caritas Europa brings together the human, technical and financial resources of its member organisations.

Selected strategic goals for the period 2011 – 2020 currently under implementation are the following.

Priority Area I - Advocacy: Caritas Europa aims to improve the quality of life of people experiencing poverty or in a situation of vulnerability by advocating for integral human development and social justice.

Priority Area II - Humanitarian coordination and learning: Caritas Europa responds as a professional and effective actor to humanitarian crises in Europe and, situated within the global response of Caritas Internationalis, also all over the world.

Priority area III - strengthening the network: Caritas Europa aims to increase the impact of its common action. It promotes the mutual support and performance of its members.
