Kinship carers care for children and young people when their birth parents are unable to care for the child themselves and they may be a relative or a family friend.
With changing and diverse family types in Scotland today, it is important to consider the different influences in young lives and the potential impact these may have on children and young people’s development.
You can also see some further information from Who Cares Scotland?, who are a national voluntary organisation, working with care experienced young people and care leavers across Scotland, explaining more about the work they do with Care Experienced individuals and why this is important.
