Luton Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire County Councils have joined forces to encourage residents to consider adopting or fostering a child.
They will be hosting an information day on Thursday, March 5, at Luton Sports Village, Hitchin Road, from 3.30pm to 8.30pm. Teams will be speaking about opportunities available in the area.
Luton councillor Waheed Akbar, said: “We need to find temporary and permanent homes for children of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and religions.
“We also have a particular need for those able to care for sibling groups.”
To adopt or foster you must be over 21, have lots of patience, be flexible and energetic.
