Our new national Peer-to-Peer Support Service will be working with thousands of kinship carers and kinship carer volunteers to create a network of support groups across England. Funded by the Department for Education, this new service will be game-changing for kinship carers. The support groups will enable kinship carers to connect with other kinship carers, and offer them a safe space to share experiences, learn from each other and provide emotional support.
To support the peer support groups, our specialist Advice Team will be able to offer expert information and advice to support groups through facilitating themed online workshops and one-to-one support for kinship carers on the phone or online.
Our Advice Team recently celebrated renewing and retaining their Advice Quality Standard and are passionate about providing friendly, expert advice and information.

Kinship is the leading charity in England and Wales for kinship carers – relatives and friends who raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it. We’re always there to help with the complicated and stressful decisions that so many kinship families have to make, as well as to celebrate the good times.
Working alongside kinship carers and the children they raise, with their voice and views at the fore, we build communities of support and give everything we have to fight for each family and their rights, as well as to raise awareness of kinship care and secure better support for all those playing this critical role.
