A children’s guide to fostering

Working in conjunction with the participation and inclusion team, I developed literature aimed at children in care. To start the process, we organised and ran a workshop with children to explore what sort of information they wanted about fostering. Then, using what we’d learnt I developed the content and worked with a designer to produce the final colourful, accessible and engaging brochure.

Working with a designer and puppet-maker, we created Sam and a cast of characters to illustrate the story of her adoption. She appears in our guide to adoption plus in a leaflet on adoption support.

 

 

 

 

cheshire newsletterFoster carers’ newsletter

The council wanted a complete refresh of their foster carer newsletter to communicate important service information as well as helpful hints on occupying children during the holidays, and fun things to do on a wet afternoon. I worked with the team to develop a design template that they could use internally to create monthly printed newsletters.
