The Welsh Government’s Parenting. Give it Time campaign has launched a new initiative. They are looking for parents across Wales who are willing to share their stories and become the #faceofparenting!
#faceofparenting is a search to find four real, families living in Wales who can share their stories about the joys and challenges of parenting.
The competition is designed to celebrate the diverse types of parents of 0-5 year olds across Wales who are building positive relationships with their children.
The campaign is looking for applications from across the length and breadth of the country, from families who represent the range and diversity of backgrounds, cultures and ages.
Looking for those with newborns, to families with one, two or lots of kids. Families with mum and dad, mum and mum, or dad and dad; with lone parents, grandparents or other carers, as well as families raising disabled children or disabled parents raising families.
From today until 31 August, parents and carers will be invited to nominate their families. To nominate your family click HERE
A panel of judges will then select four families to participate in a professional photoshoot. These photos will be used as part of the campaign including associated resources. Families’ personal experiences of life as parents of young children will be shared through photographs, videos, short stories and posts on the campaign’s website and Facebook page.
Welsh Mummy Blogs is supporting the #faceofparenting campaign. We may even enter our family!
Good luck everyone!!
