Provincial policies in favour of people and civilian services

Trentino intends to become an area which is increasingly attentive to the needs of families and younger generations. In March 2011, the Autonomous Province of Trento approved a law on family wellbeing and a few months later set up the Provincial Agency  for the Family, Parenting and Youth Policies (PAF), which coordinates provincial policies in  favour of families.

The objective is to overcome aid-based approaches to supporting families experiencing hardship and to encourage the birth of a new line of policy promoting the dynamic and  proactive role of the family in society.

The Agency for Family has the following objectives:

  • to carry out the action provided on family wellbeing;
  • to promote action to encourage births and parenting;
  • to manage family standards (Family in Trentino, Child-friendly Business and Family Audit trademarks) at provincial level and beyond;
  • to implement policy in support of young people;
  • to carry out action to promote equal opportunities, guaranteeing support for the activities of the provincial Equal Opportunities Committee and the Equal Opportunities Councillor;
  • to implement measures to support sporting activities, with particular reference to promotion among young people;
  • to promote civilian service;
  • to implement any other intervention entrusted to it by the provincial government.

The Agency for the family, birth and youth policy presents an interesting video that shows all the activities and projects that promote on its territory.
