BARNSLEY Council is on the lookout for prospective foster parents.

The council’s fostering team say that there’s ‘no such thing as a typical foster carer’ - and that if you’re over 21 and have space in your home to welcome a child, you could be the person they’re looking for.

A spokesperson added: “We’re always on the lookout for those special people who can give a safe and loving home to a child in care at a time when they need it most.

“The children we care for come from all walks of life and from very different circumstances, but they’re all looking for the same thing - a family to love them.

“If you could welcome a child or young person into your heart, your home and your family and give them the love, care and support they need, please get in touch.”
