Covid-19: Information for kinship families
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.
Grandparents Plus State of the Nation Survey 2020
The Grandparents Plus annual State of the Nation survey helps give us a better picture of what it is like to be a kinship carer and to gather evidence of where more support and understanding is needed for kinship carers and their families. This helps us to develop services to better support kinship carers as well as raise awareness of kinship care in the media and among decision makers like local authorities and the national government.

We have appointed a new development manager for Wales who will collaborate with kinship carers and local authorities.
