Acorn Care & Education run a number of fostering agencies, including Fostering Solutions and Pathway Care Fostering.
We were delighted when Acorn chose to support us as part of an ongoing partnership. Become is here to support and champion young people in care – their client group – and we are proud to have the backing of an organisation that works hard to offer the best possible support to children in its care.
Acorn Care & Education sponsored our Christmas card design competition for children in care in 2015. Children were invited to send in their designs for Christmas cards, and a panel – made up of Natalie Jayne, CEO of Acorn, Natasha Finlayson, CEO of Become, and Emma Price, Editor of Who Cares? Junior magazine – chose the winning pictures. It was really, really tough and the backing of Acorn meant we could print hundreds of lovely cards for happy customers, turn a small profit, and send prizes and commemoratory cards to the winners and runners up. Such a success!
