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.

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.
Kinship carer Wendy Turner wrote an impassioned letter to the Guardian raising concerns on restricting the freedoms of grandparents and older kinship carers.
We had a wonderful Kinship Care Week and have created a short film highlighting events, discussions, activities, and most of all – kinship carers!
