Fostering in South Wales Award Success For Foster Carer Will! New christmas card competition launched
News | Fostering in South Wales Following the NFA Group’s purchase in August 2016 of Acorn Care and Education, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) approved the purchase, but with a requirement the Group reduces its size in the fostering market in Wales, Norfolk, Luton and Bedfordshire to ensure that in those areas the local market remained open and fair. NFA Group accepted the ruling and Deloittes were appointed to manage the divestment of the relevant parts of our business, overseen by two Trustees appointed by the CMA.

Trust to launch a Christmas card drawing competition and are inviting children to draw or paint a picture about Christmas or winter. The winning four designs will be chosen at the end of October and turned into Christmas cards – these will be sold to support the work of The Who Cares? Trust, which aims to give children in care a voice and aims to improve the future of young people in, and who have just left, care. Natalie-Jane Macdonald, Chief Executive of Acorn Care and Education, will be one of the competition judges. Each winner will also receive a pack of cards with their design on. Closing date for the competition is October 20 and winners will be notified week commencing 26 October 2015. Full details of how to enter can be found on The Who Cares? Trust website. Good luck!
