The main formal structure of EurofamNet is the Management Committee (MC), which comprises MC members and MC substitutes from each of the participating countries. The MC is the decision-making structure for the Action, agreeing EurofamNet work-plans and activities and signing off on key outputs. 

The activities of EurofamNet are organised through five Working Groups. This work is complemented by a Policy and Practice Group focused on the policy and practice spheres of EurofamNet.

While Action participants mainly come from academic and research institutions, we have strong representation from policy and practice groups in the policy and practice area. A Policy and Practice Group was established in July 2020.

At national level, National Working Groups are been developed to include policy and practice and academic representatives. 

The EurofamNet structure reflects our commitment to:

  • Double-layered structureThe Action aims to establish a supranational network that make possible policy engagement between the European level and the local/regional/national levels, with mutual influence between them.
  • A bottom-up processWe are seeking regional and national solutions, by engaging the existing national structures and cooperating with them systematically during the life of the Action.
  • Dialogical style: Because the Action aims to make a difference to children, young people and parents, the Action gives an active role to the most relevant European associations representing practitioners and families, as well as organizations representative of civil society.
