PEOPLE of Trowbridge and beyond were encouraged to get into children's care and services at Wiltshire Council's Find your Future event at county hall on Saturday morning.

Budding careers gathered to hear a presentation on the industry and were given advice from professionals throughout the event.

Lucy Townsend, director of families and children's services at Wiltshire Council said: "This was a great opportunity for people to come and see what we are doing in Wiltshire, in terms of career opportunities.

"We have seen some people who are thinking about social work as a career, existing social workers who may have taken a career break or change, and students who listened to lecturer Stefan Kleipoedszus from Bournemouth University who we are in a teaching partnership with, which was really great."

The participants then took part in one of two workshops which focused on children and safeguarding.
