How the money raised will help children and families:
ADVICE FOR FAMILIES
Our free, specialist, confidential advice service for parents and kinship carers in England is more in demand than ever but our current funding means we can only answer 4 in 10 calls.
FAMILY LED DECISION MAKING
We champion an approach called ‘family group conferences’ which means that when children are at risk of going into care, their wider family and friends are involved in making a plan to support their welfare. We’re working to expand this so every child can benefit.
SUPPORT FOR KINSHIP CARERS
We campaign for kinship carers to access the practical, financial and emotional support they need to help the children they are raising to thrive. This includes improved support in school and therapeutic help for any trauma they have experienced.
LIFELONG LINKS FOR CHILDREN IN CARE
We developed Lifelong Links, an approach that supports children and young people in care and care leavers to strengthen relationships with those who love them and develop a positive support network they can rely on throughout life.
