Kinship "Foster" Carers
 A place for those who care
All of our groups are closed and therefore only accessible to members.  We would ask you to note that whilst our groups are a safe and secure place to rant and rave, please remember that all comments are the personal opinion of the individual posting and not necessarily the opinion of all members, or administrators.  Members offer advice from what is often their own experience.  Our members are not legally trained and we would therefore suggest that you check any advice before following it.  To request to join any of our groups, please click on the links or contact us via email (see our "contact us" page).  You will receive a "friend request" from our Kinship Foster Carers Admin page unless you beat us to it and send a request to us first! Please accept this (it's only a temporary measure).  We will then be able to message you about joining our group.
