An event will be held in Carlisle for people interested in becoming foster carers.
Cumbria County Council say more carers are needed for children and young people of all ages. Potential carers merely need to have the skills to make a positive change to their lives.
An information event will be held at Carlisle East Community Fire Station (Eastern Way), on Wednesday 28 June, with a presentation starting at 6pm.
The council's fostering team will be in attendance to offer support and confidential advice.
