Kinship Care Week 5-11 October 2020
We are the national kinship care charity. We want kinship carers and the children they are raising to be recognised, valued and supported. There are 200,000 children in UK being raised by relatives or friends because their parents can no longer look after them.
Get free support now
You’re entitled to free support as a kinship carer and we are here to help you. You don’t need to fight for support alone.
We know that this is an extremely difficult and uncertain time for kinship carers. We want to let you know that we are here for you.
If you’re a kinship carer and are interested in volunteering, join our Someone Like Me peer support programme and support other kinship carers.
Many kinship carers, some with underlying health issues that made them vulnerable, are concerned that their children might be exposed to the virus on returning to school.
