Kinship "Foster" Carers
 A place for those who care


We have decided to create a blog for our members to participate in. This is new and may take a while to get going so bear with us!  We always seem to be saying to non carers who comment negatively about Kinship Care or the need for support, that they shouldn't judge until they have walked in our shoes.  In truth we would not wish anyone to have to face some of the harrowing situations that our members have faced but that said it should not be forgotten that it can happen to anyone for a variety of reasons and oftern turn you life upside down. So whilst we wouldn't wish some of the distressing circumstances we face on anyone it is not all bad. 
We hope that by reading our blog people can see the battles, triumphs, joy and sadness we all face as carers.
