UNAF defends a society in which all families can enforce their rights and guarantee the development, welfare and quality of life of their individual members. This democratic, progressive and sympathetic vision inspires and motivates us to continue working day by day.
Our objectives are:
1. – Promote and defend all the values that contribute to the democratization of families, the development of human rights and enhance the quality of life and welfare of all of the member who make up a family..
2. – Act as spokesperson between the Spanish family associations and the national, European and global associative organizations, considering the increasing importance the international and European organizations have acquired in the decision making on social and family issues.
UNAF´s participation in World Family Organization (OFM) and the European Coordination Organism for Foreigners Rights for Family Life (Coordinadora Europea por el Derecho de los Extranjeros a Vivir en Familia), allows the organizations which are part of UNAF to benefit from first-hand information and to participate in European and global family resolutions.
3. – Reinforce the presence of the family associative movement by promoting the creation of similar organizations. Cooperate with other family associations and those which are related in one way or another with family associationism. UNAF promotes the association between different organizations that have specific objectives (single mothers, separated and divorced women, rural families, child protection, young parents, consumers, families of gays and lesbians, the disabled, the chronic and terminally ill, immigrants, etc.) in order to promote progressive family politicies.
