Kinship Connected 

We work with local authorities across the country to offer support specially designed for kinship carers, including tailored one-to-one family support from our independent, local project workers, support groups and workshops.


We want more local authorities to offer our specialist support for kinship carers and are talking to them all the time. Below are the areas we're currently working in. If you live in one of these areas you may want to talk to your local authority about having Kinship Connected support.
