The Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe (FAFCE), is an umbrella organisation of 28 national and local family associations. FAFCE holds participatory status with the Council of Europe since 2001 and is a member of the Fundamental Rights Platform of the European Union. We represent families from all over Europe on issues related to family policy, work-life balance, demographic challenges, support for the elderly,child protection and intergenerational solidarity.

We welcome the European Commission’s commitment to fighting child sexual abuse. As a Federation of families, parents and children, we would like to call the attention of the Commission to several key elements when it comes to the protection of children online.
