Relative Experience (360G-blf-0031032694)
This funding will develop a project supporting kinship carers, who are typically grandparents taking long term or permanent care of children unable to live with parents. This will look to expand a scheme in the North East providing a volunteer training programme and befriending service for carers to support others in their situation. It will explore the potential to influence provision for kinship carers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales through research, cost analysis and stakeholder engagement.
