What People Say
I look after my nephew and have 4 children of my own, they have helped me get the support that we need. I cant thank kinship care enough for all they have done for me. I have met new people and I feel happier now in myself that I am no longer alone. Thank you kinship
Being around other kinship carers helps me and let's me know I am not on my own. The days and events they organise are really good fun I love being part of something so positive and supportive
Kinship care has introduced me to other carers. I never knew I was a kinship carer until i became involved in the events and group they run
Kinship care are a great charity, they have helped a lot of children stay together in their families. It cannot be put into words the support they offer, one word comes to mind is AMAZING
I love kinship care
I attend the cooking club and have met so many new friends. It's great fun, everyone makes me feel so welcome. I like cooking
