A report by Nicol Economics for Grandparents Plus
Grandparents Plus believes that increased support and investment in kinship care now, will lead to better outcomes for children, wider society and the economy in the future.
Our externally commissioned research (Kinship Care: The Opportunity) suggests that by investing in support for kinship carers it is possible to reduce the numbers of children growing up in local authority care.
The report shows that in addition to the financial benefits of this, there would be other long-term benefits in terms of reduced homelessness, levels of crime and anti-social behaviour, and better health.
