Kinship is the leading kinship care charity in England and Wales. We’re here for all kinship carers – the grandparents and siblings, the aunts, uncles, and family friends who step up to raise children when their parents can’t.
Kinship Compass is here to help all kinship carers to get expert advice and information. And to support them to access emotional support through peer support groups and connecting with other kinship carers.
Visit Kinship Compass, our independent information, advice and support hub just for kinship carers. The one place you can go for information, expert advice and support for every stage of your kinship care journey, tailored to your situation.
