Appeal for foster parents
Rutherglen shoppers are to be reminded of the urgent need for the recruitment of foster and adoptive parents to care for children who cannot live with their birth families.
South Lanarkshire Council Family Placement Team will be in the Rutherglen Exchange Shopping Centre on Wednesday October 24 between 11am and 4pm to raise awareness among local families.
The team will have a stall and will be handing out leaflets at the centre in a bid to recruit more foster carers and adoptive parents for South Lanarkshire children.
An open evening will also be held for anyone interested in fostering on Wednesday, November 7 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at South Lanarkshire Council HQ, Almada Street, Hamilton.
Alternatively, call 0303 123 1008 for further information.
