COFACE Families Europe has in these days launched their last policy briefing which provides insights in how Covid-19 has negatively impacted the situation of families, especially the most vulnerable ones. Furthermore, the policy brief analyses the different measures taken to mitigate the situation including extraordinary leaves, care vouchers, flexible work solutions, reflecting a mix of measures based on resources, services and flexible working. Last, but not least, the brief is a call for going beyond the implementation of the transposition of the Work-Life Balance Directive. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures to boost investment in social and healthcare services to support families.
