This week Family Rights Group has launched a survey for kinship carers to share their experiences with MPs and Peers.
A kinship carer is a family member or friend who is raising a child under the age of 18 who cannot live with their parents.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Kinship Care – a cross party group in Parliament – is currently running an inquiry into legal aid and legal advice for kinship carers and prospective kinship carers.
Family Rights Group provide the secretariat to the APPG and our survey has helped parliamentarians to hear the voices and experiences of kinship carers across the country.
The survey is now closed and findings are being shared with the APPG to inform their inquiry.
Thank you to all carers who took the time to complete the survey. Your answers will be invaluable to raise awareness of kinship care, and achieve better support for kinship carers and the children they are raising.
