An information evening for people who are thinking of adopting a child is being held in Preston.
The event will be held on February 4 at County Hall, on Fishergate Hill in Preston, from 6pm to 7.30pm.
Following a short presentation, members of Lancashire County Council’s adoption team, including social workers, will be available to answer questions, and talk visitors through the process and offer confidential advice.
County Councillor Matthew Tomlinson, cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “We need people from all backgrounds to offer a permanent home and family to children who are not able to live with their birth family. “You must be over 21, and live in Lancashire or close by, but whatever your race, gender, sexuality, living arrangements, age or employment status we want to hear from you.
“What matters to us are your personal qualities and that you are able to provide a loving home.”
