Kinfest 2010.

August 2010 saw our first Kinfest!

It was borne from just a small group of carers from across the UK that decided it would be fun to meet up on a holiday.

Skegness was deemed as central enough for everyone and holidays were booked.



Little did these 10 or so families know what a benefit it would prove to be; not just for the carers but the children too.  They were able to "normalise" their family life with others in similar situations.  Also, the "sharers" met other "sharers" who have accepted these children into their lives; sharing their parents, rooms and pocket money, whilst often having to come to terms with the distressing family circumstances that led to the children being placed in their parents care.

And so this was the start of bigger and better!!
