Networks & Membership

The Caritas international network

Caritas Luxembourg is part of a global confederation that works in solidarity for a fairer world, drawing inspiration from the Christian faith and from the Church's social doctrine.

The 162 national Caritas organisations constitute the largest network of Catholic charitable organisations in the world, dedicated to reducing poverty and campaigning to promote social justice. Caritas Internationalis is based in Rome, in Vatican City. The 51 European members of Caritas Internationalis form the Europe region and are established as not-for-profit associations, with the head office of Caritas Europa based in Brussels.

Caritas Luxembourg, an active member of many platforms

In order to increase the impact of its activities in certain areas, Caritas Luxembourg works together with other associations.

Such is the case, for example, for issues related to refugees. Caritas Luxembourg is part of the “Collectif Réfugiés Luxembourg” (Luxembourg Refugees Collective). Together, LFR members campaigned in 2022 on several issues and formulated requests on asylum and integration to the political parties in view of the 2023 parliamentary elections.

For North-South issues, positions are also taken in concert with other NGOs, notably through the "Plaidons Responsable" programme.

Caritas Luxembourg is part of many platforms, including: Agence du Bénévolat (Voluntary Work Agency), the Banque alimentaire (Food Bank), the Coalition Nationale pour les droits de l'Enfant (National Coalition for the Rights of Children), the Conférence Générale de la Jeunesse Luxembourgeoise (General Youth Conference of Luxembourg), Don en confiance (Giving in Confidence), the EAPN (the European Anti-Poverty Network), FEANTSA (European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless), FEDAS (Luxembourg Federation of Social Sector Organisations).
