ADOPTION services are working together for a recruitment and information event.

Councils and voluntary adoption agencies will host the day for anyone considering adopting children.

It means potential parents will be able to get advice from a variety of sources with the aim of helping more children find homes. The event will be the first time a range of experts have worked together in Hampshire.

It is being held at the Ageas Bowl, in Southampton, on Saturday from 10am to 2pm.
