Our missions in the service of the family

• Our missions

Responsibilities according to article L211-3 of the Code de l'Action Sociale et des Familles

Chapter 1 of the Social Action and Family Code, "Family Associations", sets out the aims and responsibilities of Udaf de Tarn-et-Garonne (Udaf 82)

To be a force of proposition with the public authorities

The national union and the departmental unions of family associations are authorised, without prejudice to any rights and prerogatives that may result from their statutes, to

"Give their opinion to the public authorities on family matters and propose to them the measures that appear to be in the material and moral interests of families."

Defend the interests of families before the public authorities

"Officially represent all families to the public authorities and in particular appoint or propose family delegates to the various councils, assemblies or other bodies set up by the State, the region, the department or the commune."

To be at the service of families

Note: Udaf's legal mission is to represent all families without exception, and not just the members of family associations. This family representation therefore reflects the reality of families both in their specificities and in their globality.

"To manage any service of family interest which the public authorities consider they should be responsible for."

To be empowered to defend families before all authorities

"To exercise before all jurisdictions, without having to justify an approval or a prior authorisation from the public authority, in particular the approval provided for in Article L. 621-1 of the Consumer Code, civil action in relation to facts likely to harm the moral and material interests of families, including the offences provided for in Article 227-24 of the Criminal Code" (Legifrance).
