Family Solidarity is a broadly based association, not confined to any class or creed, organised to educate its members and others so that they can promote the best interests of the family in all aspects, but particularly where these interests are being eroded.
It draws its inspiration from the Irish Constitution, the Charter of the Human Rights of the Family, and “Familiaris Consortio”.
The Irish Constitution gives the family its rightful place. In practice, however, various forces are undermining it.

We must ensure that society recognises the importance of the family and respects its rights.
Family Solidarity has been formed as a nationwide organisation dedicated to serving and supporting the Christian family.
