Dear all,
 
It is a pleasure, as COFACE’s new Communication Officer, to be sending out my very first newsletter to you all. Passionate about creating and highlighting empowering stories that portray communities in a dignified way, my role as a communicator has always been rooted in my convictions for social inclusion and justice.
 
The collaborative core and mission of COFACE is a great source of inspiration and I’m looking forward to playing my part.
 
Please, do not hesitate to reach out to me via email (bguigui@coface-eu.org) so that we can e-meet. But first things first, I invite you to read more about the news on European families that we have compiled for you.
 
 
Happy reading,
 
Bettina
Communication Officer
