Families needed to offer children 'home for life'

This week is National Adoption Week - and charities are raising awareness about the many more families needed to offer children a home for life.

There are 155 children on the adoption waiting list in our region at the moment - and that's outnumbering adoptive parents by more than 3 to 1.

To mark National Adoption Week 2018, Southampton City Council's Fostering & Adoption Service is hosting a big recruitment open day this Saturday 20 October at the Ageas Bowl cricket ground from 10am to 2pm.
