PEOPLE interested in fostering children can find out more at two information evenings.

Essex County Council is particularly keen to hear from carers who are willing to consider fostering siblings, teenagers and children with disabilities as there is a particular shortage of carers for these groups of children.

Information events are being held at Essex House, 200 The Crescent, Colchester Business Park, CO4 9YQ from 6.30pm on Wednesday January 23, and at 7pm the following Wednesday at the Esplanade Hotel, 27-29 Marine Parade East, Clacton, CO15 1UU.
