TEENAGERS, siblings and children with disabilities are in urgent need of foster parents.

All children are different, and to meet their needs the county council welcomes applications from a wide variety of people.

For information about fostering visit Quedgeley library in Bristol Road from 2pm to 6pm on today, Thursday, or the Old Town Hall in Stroud High Street between 5pm and 9pm on Tuesday, May 20.

The council aims to approve foster carers within five months of accepting their application. Those interested in fostering must have a spare room available.

For further information about fostering with the county council go to or call 01242 532654.
