Dear all,  
 
 
After meeting with our network in Ljubljana this March, COFACE Families Europe is now looking forward to connecting once more with members and sister organisations in Amsterdam.

These moments allow our great network to regroup and exchange on how best to support families in today’s society. June is also the time of the year when COFACE shares its annual report, and reflects on past activities and impact to better move forward.

Stay safe,
