Adoption agency aims to speak to shoppers.
Staff from Sunderland-based ARC Adoption, a not for profit voluntary agency, will be at Asda in Blyth tomorrow and Sainsbury's in Durham on Friday.
Terry Fitzpatrick, director at ARC said: "The team at ARC feel it is a privilege to work in the field of adoption and we are looking to increase awareness about adoption and the opportunities for children in the region to experience a positive family life.
"There are currently 6,000 children nationally who are in need of a positive family life and we are visiting supermarkets in the North East in order to talk to people about adoption.
"We are very happy to talk with people whether it's the first time that they have ever thought about becoming adoptive parents or whether they are some way down the path in adopting a child and how ARC can help."
People are welcome to approach the team who have many years experience in adoption and social work, for a chat and further information.
Registered with Ofsted, ARC is one of only three Governmentfunded adoption agencies in the UK set up to encourage more people to adopt.
