For professionals Masterclasses Masterclasses Our Masterclass events reflect our 15 years of experience working with kinship carers, and focus on providing carers with the tools they need to raise their children confidently. Research shows that children who stay within the family experience increased placement stability and benefit from maintained family relationships. Carers want the best for the children, but many struggle to cope with challenging childhood behaviours. Our Masterclasses are designed especially for kinship carers and those professionals working with them, and explore practical strategies and approaches to dealing with the unique challenges involved in kinship care. Evaluation 100% of carers and professionals who attended a Masterclass last year said they would recommend the event to other kinship carers and professionals. Last year 98% of people reported they were better able to understand child behaviour as a result of the Masterclass. Testimonials 'A very good and informative day, well worth attending.
