We collaborate with a wide range of trusts, institutions, companies, organisations, schools and local authorities to create the greatest possible impact for grandparents and kinship families. Without this vital network of support, we simply couldn’t do what we do.

Institutional partners, trusts and foundations

We work with a range of institutional partners, trust and foundations to fund programmes that improve the lives of grandparents and kinship families. We're grateful for the current support of:

  • Players of People's Postcode Lottery
  • The National Lottery Community Fund
  • Esmée Fairbairn Foundation
  • DCMS/NESTA Connected Communities Innovation Fund
  • Sport England Families Fund
  • Garfield Weston Foundation
  • Cripplegate Foundation
  • Headley Trust
  • Dulverton Trust
  • Mercer's Company
  • Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation

and the many other funders who make our work possible.


Haven supports Grandparents Plus to enable us to offer discounted holidays to kinship families who may not otherwise be able to afford to go on holiday.  

We are currently looking to expand the portfolio of our corporate partnerships.


We partner with organisations that enhance our work and enable us to reach more kinship families and have greater impact, and we're also an active member of the Kinship Care Alliance.

Local authorities

We collaborate with local authorities to improve outcomes for the families they work with and reduce the need for local authority intervention. 

We’re currently working with local authorities across England as part of our Kinship Connected programme that supports kinship families.  If you work for a local authority and would like to commission one of our services click here.  We also run best practice support networks in both the North and South of England for professionals who work with kinship families.  Click here for more information about how to join one of these groups.
