Wales’ Biggest Scarf? Showing Some Love to Our Care Experienced Community

Last week, Jane Dodds MS met with care experienced young people from all over Wales at the Senedd to hear about their campaign to build a care system with love at its heart. 

The young people had brought to the Senedd what they believe to be Wales’ biggest scarf. 

By the time it is finished it will be made up of almost 8,000 squares – one for each child currently in the care system in Wales and will be over 700 metres long. 

People from all over Wales and beyond have been sewing, knitting, and crocheting, showing their love and concern for care experienced children and their support for a care system built on love. 

The scarf is a symbol of warmth and care, of the chance to build lasting loving relationships that every child needs. 

Commenting, Jane Dodds MS said:

“It was great to meet Jo, Brendan, and the other young people to hear about their campaign. 

The scarf is an imaginative way to symbolise a care system with love at its heart. 

Making a contribution of a square or two to the scarf is a great way for us all to send a message of support to care experienced children and young people. 

The aim is to complete the scarf with 7,983 squares, one for each child in care, by Care Leavers Week in October. 

Handicrafts aren’t something I’m good at, but I’m happy to support the campaign in other ways. 

If anyone in my region of Mid and West Wales would like to contribute, they are welcome to drop squares – which need to measure 8 inches by 8 inches – off at my office (11 Lion St, Brecon, LD3 7HY) and I’ll pass them on. 

Or you can send directly to Voices From Care Cymru, 45 the Parade, Cardiff, CF243AB. 

Let’s show some love to our care experienced children.”
