MORE potential adoptive parents need to come forward in Barnsley to meet an ongoing need.

Anyone considering adoption is invited to attend an information evening at Barnsley Town Hall from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Wednesday, July 15.

The informal event is an opportunity to get more information, ask questions of the team and speak with adoptive parents about their experiences.

Coun Margaret Bruff said: “The whole team in Barnsley is working extremely hard for the best outcomes for children currently in care.

"There have been lots of happy endings but there are always more children still searching for their forever homes and they rely on new adoptive parents being approved to secure their future.”
