Portugal: APFN already represents more than 10,000 large families

In the last year, it reached 1,018 new families, which means that about 93 new families join each month.

In a year of so many overcoming for families, with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the world population, the Portuguese Large Families Association (APFN) reached an important milestone in 2021 and now represents more than 10,000 large families.

In such a different year, APFN fulfilled its mission of representing and defending the interests of families with three or more children.

APFN fulfilled its goal of being an attentive and active association and triggered alarms, with public interventions calling the public authorities’ attention to the challenges identified and the need for measures to address them. The association continued to provide legal support to its members and in 2021 focused on the issues of telework and family support.

During 2021, APFN also carried out the survey of the specific measures created by municipalities during the pandemic and brought together in a study about the family support policies created in Europe by the various governments during the pandemic.

At APFN, the year 2021 was also marked by the launch of the exclusive digital tool for members, the SOS Families – a new aid project for large Portuguese families. The online platform promotes direct help among the association’s families.
