The week shines a spotlight on kinship care. It’s our chance to raise awareness of the incredible role kinship carers play in children’s lives and in society, and to celebrate and share our stories of love, friendship and support. It’s our time to talk about how proud we are of the amazing children you’ve raised, and to thank the people who have been there for you along the way – supporting you through the toughest times.
We know that kinship caring comes with its highs and lows, but this week is dedicated to celebrating the good times, and doing it together.

What would you like to say to the kinship families in your life?
Now’s your chance to say it loud and proud, and let them know exactly how you feel about them.
Whether you’re a kinship carer who relies on the support of a friend, or you know a kinship carer who deserves to be honoured, help us spread the word and celebrate kinship families.
