A new website has been launched for to help find parents for more than 50 Blackpool children in need of loving homes.

Blackpool Council’s adoption services hopes the move will make the process smoother. The site includes the approval process, child profiles, news and events.

There is no waiting list to begin the adoption process and on average a child is matched within 12 months of becoming an approved adopter.

Coun Sarah Riding, cabinet member with responsibility for adoption services, said: “I am excited about our new website and hoping it will encourage people who have ever thought about adopting a child to take the next step and contact us.”
