Have you got what it takes to foster? It's the question being asked by the county council in Cumbria at the launch of a new campaign to find loving, caring homes for vulnerable children in the south Lakes area.
The campaign is inviting people to do what the authority describes as something incredible for children in need in their area.
Ralph Blunsom's been to Kendal to meet one of Cumbria's most experienced foster carers.
