Child and Family Poverty

Caritas Europa’s vision for resilient European social models, that provide for the well-being of all people, is based on policies that tackle Child and Family Poverty along with Social Protection and Inclusive Labour Markets.

Strong families make strong societies. Caritas Europa wants European and national decision makers to prioritise the fight against child and family poverty as an essential means for contributing to just and strong European societies.

Caritas Europa reminds European governments that European institutions have put in place several instruments which, if fully applied, would contribute to tackling child and family poverty efficiently and break the cycle of poverty across generations.

Family and child poverty in Europe is an immense but disregarded threat to the future cohesion and development of our communities. It must urgently be addressed if we want to ensure integral human development for everyone and a strong European society.
