Kinship Care Celebration Day

It’s nearly time for our annual Celebration Day. Every year we like to bring families together and celebrate the amazing job kinship carers are doing across the country. The day gives you the chance to meet other kinship carers and have a fun day out with the kids. This year, on Saturday 6th October, we’ll be celebrating with kinship carers in London, Alnwick, Halifax, and Warrington, and we want you to join us. You’ll be able to book online from 27th August, the event is free but you will be asked to pay a refundable deposit per booking. Read our celebration day FAQs, and keep an eye on your inbox for more information, we'll send an email when booking is open.
