A plea has gone out for potential foster carers to come forward in the Newtown area.

Powys County Council is to host a special event in the town to encourage more people to consider fostering in the area.

From part time respite to a permanent new home for looked after children, fostering and adoption can make a huge difference to the lives of kids who cannot remain with their families for any reason, or for families who need a short break.

Powys County Council’s Cabinet member for Children, Youth, Libraries and Leisure Services, Cllr Rachel Powell said: “A wide range of individuals and families willing to transform the lives of our young people are needed from across the county and from all backgrounds.

“People worry they don’t have the right skills to do this, but what children need are welcoming homes, commitment and a willingness to work alongside those involved with the children. 

“Supporting a young person in your community and taking on this role can bring with it a real sense of fulfilment. I’d urge anyone who is interested to come along to the events to have a chat with staff and carers and find out more.

“You, or someone you know, may be the carer that our children need.”

The Open Day takes place from 10am-6pm on February 22 in The Elephant and Castle, Newtown.
