The European Federation of Parents and Carers at Home | Fédération Européenne des femmes Actives en Familles (FEFAF):

FEFAF requests from National Governments, Decision-making Bodies of the European Union, and the UN:

  • The recognition of the human, social and economic value of “family-based work” - of attention, care and education - carried out at home toward a dependent relative: CARE
  • for those who carry out this unremunerated CARE: a social statute of their own; to confer on them dignity and citizenship based on human and economic values; to ensure them of social rights ( not linked to a statute of remunerated work) whilst upholding established rights; to reduce the risk of poverty and precariousness to which they are exposed.
  • a family policy guaranteeing the rights of families and children, taking into account the needs and lifecycles of parents and children
  • collecting data in national and European statistics on At Home Women/Men, “carers”, and the needs of families and of each of their members
  • the possibility of a true civil dialogue by giving European NGOs adequate legal and financial means
