November 2010 "European Family Conference" COFACE plans to hold a major wrap-up conference during the Belgian presidency in 2010. The objective is to draw policy and operational conclusions and to give a high visibility to the three-year progress operation as a whole, focusing on the fight against poverty and social exclusion.Harking back to a COFACE initiative which will be the 5th of this kind (the first 4 took place at 3-years intervals between 1987 and 1996), these conferences were organised by COFACE and financially supported by the European Commission.Four main policy areas will be tackled: Family and Social policies; Inclusive policies for disabled and other dependent persons and their families; Consumer protection, Services and Public Health policies and Education and New Information Technologies policies.
