ROTHERHAM Council is backing a national call for more people to come forward and become adopters or foster carers.

Next Monday marks the start of the second annual national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Adoption and Fostering Week, organised by New Family Social.

National groups say they believe that if more LGBT people came forward to foster or adopt they could help make up the national caring shortfall. Currently it is estimated that 4,000 children need adopting every year, and an extra 9,000 foster carers must be found.
