We are delighted to announce we will be partnering with 69 local authorities and 12 regional adoption agencies across England to provide tailored support for Special Guardians through our Kinship Response service. This brings the overall number of local authorities we work across to 78.
As part of the Kinship Response programme, we will provide tailored, one-to-one support for 910 Special Guardians across England, to help with the challenges of raising relative’s children during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Support offered will include access to our Advice service, virtual support groups for Special Guardians to share their experiences with one another, membership of our Kinship Community of over 7000 kinship carers, and support with digital skills and technology to help keep people connected during these difficult times.
