This website has been developed by Kinship Carers for Kinship Carers. Predominately, but not solely, for Kinship Carers in the Northamptonshire area we aim to have regular meet ups which enable not only us to meet others in a similar situation but also the children that we care for, and love.
The primary aim is to offer support and advice by helping you to feel less isolated.
We are unable to offer legal advice but we can offer you knowledge, experience and friendship as well as pointing you in the right direction regarding legal matters and other avenues of support for you and the children you care for.
Throughout this site, you will see a number of boxes.
Clicking on the boxes will take you to a sub-page containing relevant information - sometimes this will load as a new page.
Kinship Care is an arrangement where a child who cannot be cared for by their parent(s) goes to live with a relative or a family friend.
Do you care for a young family member?
Do you have times when you feel alone?
Would you like to be in touch with others that can empathise with your family situation?
Would you like more information about Kinship Care and the support and services that may be out there?
Could your family benefit from talking to others and sharing experiences?
If yes to any of these questions, then get in touch with us.
