MONMOUTHSHIRE County Council’s fostering team will be hitting the road and travelling across Monmouthshire in a bid to attract more carers to look after children in the county.

The roadshow coincides with Fostering Fortnight which is taking place from Monday, May 14 to May 27.

Residents can stop and have a chat with the team who will be situated next to the council’s exhibition trailer in car parks and town centres across the county.

Fostering Fortnight is a National campaign which aims to encourage people to think about the difference they could make by fostering. The team and bus will be at Caldicot, Market on May 15, outside Shire Hall in Monmouth on May 18, at Fairfield car park in Abergavenny on May 22, at Maryport Street North car park in Usk on May 24 and at Welsh Street car park in Chepstow on May 25.

All of these events are from 11am to 1pm.

A meet and greet will take place on May 30 at the Bridges Centre, Monmouth, 10am – 12.00pm and 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
