Let’s get creative about Love
The Care Review is exploring what love really means to infants, children and young people in care and how to make sure their daily lives are filled with it.
Starting on Valentine’s day 2019, the Love group are putting out an open call for people to send a creative contribution to be displayed on their online digital gallery.
You can contribute in any way you like – drawings, painting, photography, poetry, a song or rap to share what love means to you and help the Care Review understand what needs to happen to make sure that people who experience care feel loved.
