The Guardian has covered the announcement, including a quote from Cathy Ashley, Family Rights Group’s chief executive in which she states “Adoption is the right solution for some children. However, far more children who cannot live with their parents flourish in the care of wider family, yet the latter receives negligible recognition, support or finance.”

Our chief executive further commented “In 2015, I participated in a debate on adoption in which I stated ‘“kinship care is treated as the “Cinderella permanence option.”‘ Sadly this appears to be as true today as it was four years ago.”
