COUNCIL officers have called on people from ‘all walks of life’ to consider fostering and adoption.

The council’s executive board member for children and young people’s services, Clr Colin Froggatt, urged lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the borough to look into becoming a foster carer or adopting a child or young person.

He said: “We need foster carers from all walks of life, LGBT or heterosexual, to provide much needed homes for Warrington’s children in care. We especially need carers for older children.”

It’s estimated that nationwide 4,000 children need to be adopted every year, and an additional 8,600 foster carers must be found.
