Who we are and what we do
Kinship is the leading kinship care charity in England and Wales. We are here for all kinship carers – the grandparents and siblings, the aunts, uncles, and family friends who step up to raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We won’t rest until every kinship family has the recognition, value and support they need and deserve.

- help to apply for grants
- preparation workshops
- one-to-one peer support over the phone
