Kinship Carers Support Group

Kinship carers are family members or friends who end up looking after a child because their parents aren’t able to care for them due to any reason, for example bereavement, imprisonment, ill health, drug or alcohol misuse etc. 

The support group aims to: 

  • Provide a safe and supportive environment to share experiences and explore the unique challenges faced by Kinship Carers
  • Establish support/social networks for Kinship Carers
  • Learn from visiting guest speakers about relevant topics and matters of shared interest.

Please note: This event is only suitable for Parents/Carers. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide childcare, or accommodate children, unless otherwise stated.
