Changes to Kinship Care Advice Service for Scotland

As you may be aware the Kinship Care Advice Service for Scotland is now being run by Adoption UK Scotland in partnership with the Adoption and Fostering Alliance.

The service is under development and we are delighted to be working with staff from the previous service bringing all their knowledge and expertise of kinship families.

The plans for the new service will offer support for Kinship families throughout their journey, in addition to a helpline and advice service we will be developing family events, training opportunities and development and support of groups.  We will be consulting with you over the coming months as to what you want to see in the future.

As a service we appreciate that you will have questions about these changes to come and we will be updating you regularly.  

For those who are currently working with regional advisors your cases remain important to us and we will be in touch with you shortly.  Wherever possible the cases will be progressed by the original staff team.

The helpline on 0808 800 0006 is open Monday to Friday 10am – 2.30pm, messages can be left outside of these times.  

You can get in touch:

Thank you for your patience during this period of change.
