IT MAY BE AN INFORMAL ARRANGEMENT OR YOU MAY HAVE A SPECIAL GUARDIANSHIP ORDER OR A CHILD ARRANGEMENT ORDER. SOMETIMES THE CHILD IS IN THE CARE OF THE LOCAL AUTHORITY AND THE CARER IS A KINSHIP FOSTER CARER
Being a kinship carer is rewarding but there are challenges. Many carers find it helpful to meet families in the same situation and have an opportunity to gain more information and talk about the their worries. We also have Fun Days when we get together with the children for a picnic and games.
New members are welcome to come along, so do get in touch with our voluntary co-ordinator Sue Nash.
