An appeal for foster carers is to go out in Midlothian.
On October 3, Midlothian Council launches one of its biggest ever drives to recruit foster carers for children.
The campaign will include advertising on buses and bus shelters, drop-in events at libraries, supermarkets and garden centres and in the New Year, radio advertising.
Councillor Jack Aitchison, Cabinet Member for Social Work, said: “If you are even mulling over the idea of fostering then I’d urge you to contact our family placement team.”
For more information or for an informal discussion, contact the council’s family placement team on 0131 270 5678 or visit the website www.midlothian.gov.uk.
