Falkirk Council is appealing for more people from across the district to consider becoming foster carers.
Many local young people aged 18 and under are in need of short-term and long-term care, especially children and sibling groups.
If you think you can make a difference to a child, please come along
The council is asking anyone who may be considering a career as a foster carer to attend an information night on Wednesday, which will provide the opportunity to find out more about what is involved and speak to those with experience of the job.
The event takes place at the Park Hotel, Falkirk, from 7-9 p.m.
The local authority offers all potential carers support, training and pays fees and allowances to those that sign up.
A spokesman said: “If you think you can make a difference to a child, please come along.”
