sunflower design competition

fcf22 sunflower design competition

Calling all creative young people, Foster Wales Blaenau Gwent invites you to submit your original Sunflower designs to celebrate Foster Care Fortnight© 2022! 

As part of this year’s Foster Care Fortnight©, Foster Wales Blaenau Gwent is running a ‘Sunflower Design’ Competition and asking young people in the local community to get creatively involved. Sunflowers represents how foster carers can nurture a child looked after so that they can nourish, flourish and grow to reach their full potential. 

Foster Care Fortnight© is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. This year’s theme is #FosteringCommunities to celebrate the strength and resilience of fostering communities and all they do to ensure children are cared for and supported to thrive.

It hopes to shine a light on the many ways people in the fostering community have supported each other during the Covid-19 pandemic – and to highlight the need for more dedicated foster carers. 

The competition is open to all Blaenau Gwent Primary and Junior schools.
