Following some fantastic campaigning by kinship carers in 2019, we start 2020 with more than 15 MPs already committed to supporting kinship families in parliament.
This is a great start which we’re working to build on – we’re going to be busy over the next couple of weeks getting in touch with every MP with a specially designed kinship care leaflet, telling them everything they need to know about kinship care and what they need to do to support you.
We’re also excited to strengthen our campaigning with you throughout 2020, to make sure that every MP understands and acts to supports kinship families. Very soon we’ll be able to share our campaign for better access to support groups for all kinship carers. We can’t wait to continue increasing awareness of kinship care and bring about real change.
Please do keep in touch with us, or check on our website to find out more and join our campaign. And please spread the word about our campaigns to any other kinship families or groups you know and help us make sure decision makers know that kinship care matters.
