Kinship Connected is our programme of support for kinship carers. In August this year, it was externally evaluated by Starks Consulting Ltd and Ecorys.
The evaluation found that Kinship Connected had a very positive impact on kinship families, helping to reduce isolation and concerns regarding children, an increased sense of connectedness with others, and greater resilience and pride in the caring role.
The evaluation concluded that the support offered by project workers through the Kinship Connected programme and associated peer support groups was seen as being ‘vital’ by kinship carers who had previously felt neglected and isolated.
