Lancashire County Council is asking people to think about growing their family through adoption.
A special event will be held at County Hall to help people find out about adoption and the process involved. The information evening takes place on Tuesday 10th January for anyone who would like to find out more.
The event will be held at County Hall, on Fishergate in Preston, from 6pm to 7.30pm. There’s no need to book – you can just turn up, but early arrival is recommended so that the presentation can start promptly at 6pm. Everyone attending the information evening is also asked to stay for the whole session.
Free parking is available on the Arthur Street car park, next to County Hall, and the Pitt Street entrance is accessible for everyone, including disabled visitors.
To adopt, you must be over 21 and live in Lancashire or close by, whatever your race, gender, sexuality, living arrangements, age or employment status.
More about the information evening and the adoption process is available online at www.lancashire.gov.uk/adoption, or call the adoption team for an informal chat on 0800 195 1183.
