Kinship Care Week aims to increase understanding and recognition of the role of kinship carers and the challenges they often face, but importantly, it’s also an opportunity to celebrate kinship carers for the incredible role they play in raising children.
The week is co-ordinated by Kinship Care Advisory Service Scotland (KCASS) working in partnership with other Kinship Care organisations. The activities for the week are funded by the Scottish Government.
