A special meeting is being held tonight to encourage new foster carers, to deal with a shortage in the borough.

Redbridge Council will be providing information about what fostering entails and how to apply from 6pm to 8pm at Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford.

A council spokeswoman said: “We urgently need more foster carers to care for children and siblings.

“If you know you can provide a safe, secure and loving family home and have a spare room please come along to find out more.”

To foster you can be single, married, living together, working, unemployed or retired.

If you cannot make tonight’s event there will be another one at the library on May 10 at the same time.
