Core Assets Fostering - MidlandsWhen you’re invited to a craft day at your local Core Assets office over half term to help create a mosaic from some recycled FCA mugs, you know you’re in for a fun time!

That’s what happened when a group of six looked after children from Core Assets Midlands South (aged between 4 and 15) got together during the Easter holidays at the Topaz office.

With a bit of guidance from a carer and her son’s girlfriend who kindly designed the mosaic, the group decided to make a sign displaying ‘Midlands South’, the new team name.

Members of staff broke the mugs (in the name of health and safety) to be used for the mosaic before the young people got creative and stuck the pieces (very artistically) to the large MDF board with some tile adhesive.

After a lovely party lunch, the children and young people completed evaluations stating they’d like more craft days like this one as they’d all enjoyed it so much.

The finished mosaic is to be officially unveiled at the open day of the new Topaz office on 29th May where it will be displayed on the wall.
