Our annual kinship care celebration day brings families together and gives kinship carers and their children the chance to meet and connect with people in the same situation, and have a fun day out with the kids. This event is only open to kinship carers who are members of the Grandparents Plus Kinship Care Network.

At Grandparents Plus we believe in the importance of connecting kinship carers, many of whom experience loneliness and isolation as a result of stepping in to care for children. We'd like to thank the Family Holiday Association for funding this year's celebration and making it possible for kinship families to come together.
