“I came here today feeling that I just wanted to give up but I have left with a spring in my step and with the hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I now have hope that things will turn around for me and the kids” – anonymous Kinship Carer

Kinship Care support groups are a fantastic resource that we recommend to everyone. They cater for all needs and help those who may feel lost, lonely and overwhelmed to realise they are not the only ones going through this situation. They build friendships, share experiences and help others access support or services they did not know about and for some they build a passion to lobby and campaign for better support. No matter what the need a support group can play a major role in supporting kinship care families.
