Torfaen County Borough Council


Torfaen County Borough Council Social Care team are looking for an Illustrator to produce a short series of illustrations for ‘The Gwent Charter for Involvement’. The Charter sets out in their own words how supported people want to be included in their services and communities. It is written and developed by people who use services to make involvement better for everyone and hopefully will help improve the lives of supported people across Gwent.



  • There are two versions of the Charter. An ‘Easy Read’ version and a ’Long’ version’. The short one would be around 12 pages large print and the detailed one up to 30 pages.
  • We will require 12 illustrations
  • The choice of image can be determined by the illustrator but will require approval from the authors.
  • The book will be produced in paperback format and printed on an 115gsm gloss paper stock
  • The illustrations will be required by the end of August to meet an end September printing deadline (this allows for a small amount of slippage time for minor amendments/technical issues).


Anyone interested in applying to do this piece of work will be required to send a preliminary sketch in to show their work and an outline cost estimate for the complete project by the 27th July 2017 direct to or by calling 01495 742987.
