Being a kinship carer can be tough, but I wouldn’t change a thing. When your kid runs up and throws their arms around you it’s all worth it
The National Kinship Care Advice service for Scotland is fully operational during this period. We continue to offer our full advice service and encourage any kinship carer to contact us for assistance and advice.
Local authorities and other third party organisations are actively updating their websites with information of action and assistance within their local area. Our service provides you with the support to make contact with your local authority and arrange for assistance. For information on what is available in your local area.
