We are the only national charity dedicated to supporting kinship carers - grandparents and other relatives raising children who aren't able to live with their parents. There are over 200,000 children in kinship care.

The Kinship Care Guide for England

The Kinship Care Guide for England is essential reading for anyone thinking about becoming a kinship carer and those who've already taken on care of a child who isn't able to live with their parents.

Advice for kinship carers

All kinship carers can use our services. Whether you are a grandparent, sibling, other family member or friend raising children who can no longer live with their parents. Find advice here.




Despite stepping in to care for vulnerable children, most kinship carers aren't entitled to statutory support.


£20 will help us reach another kinship carer currently struggling alone. Find out how you can help.
