Around 200,000 children in the UK are growing up in kinship care – that’s roughly three times as many as foster care, yet kinship families are a comparatively invisible and poorly supported group.
Children growing up in kinship care may have similar needs to those being raised in statutory care or through adoption, however, they are often overlooked.
