Information for Kinship Carers
Who are Kinship Carers?
Carers provide care of a child or young person, when for a variety of reasons, they are unable to live with their own parents. Kinship carers are frequently relatives of the child, children or young person. They may be a grandparent or sibling of the parent, but may also be someone who has a significant relationship with the child, such as a friend of the family, or a neighbour.
