Motivation in Kinship Care
We recently completed a study on the reasons people take on the kinship caring role. As part of this we used a new questionnaire based on one that was developed in the United States for foster carers. We want to test how well the questionnaire works for UK kinship carers, and need lots of foster and kinship carers to do this. Please help us by completing this short survey anonymous survey!
Completion of the questionnaire should take approximately 5-10 minutes. For more information and to complete the survey, please click here: https://tinyurl.com/5n6ed7p3
This research study has been approved by The University of Edinburgh’s ethical committee and is being led by Sarah Jamieson, Educational Psychologist and PhD candidate. Please share the link above or the attached flyer with anyone that may be interested in participating, so we can hear from as many kinship carers as possible.
