People interested in being foster carers are encouraged to attend an information session at the Bunbury Library on August 2.

Foundations Care, a specialist foster care agency, will host the event from 1.45pm.

The information session will address misconceptions about foster caring eligibility and what is involved.

Foundations Care carer engagement and support coordinator Gabrielle Ponte said getting involved in foster care was positive and life-changing.
