To celebrate Foster Care Fortnight 2022, Torfaen Council is running a sunflower themed fostering competition for local children to get creatively involved in.

Any child between the ages of 4 and 11 can submit a design and will be in with a chance of winning a voucher for coming first, second or third place.

Sunflowers represents how foster carers can nurture a child looked after so that they can flourish and grow to full potential.

Children can get as creative as they like with paint, crayon, or pencils - there is no limit on the design.

This year's Foster Care Fortnight theme is #FosteringCommunities, which celebrates 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 closing date for competition entries is Sunday 22 May 2022. All designs must be sent to and include name and age of the child, as well as contact details for who should be notified if they are a winner!

Foster Care Fortnight© is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network.
