A kinship carer is someone who looks after the child or children of relatives, when the child’s natural parents are unable to do so. This may be an aunt, uncle, grandparent or a family friend. Kinship care can be a complex subject and can arise from complicated situations, so it’s important to know you’re supported both emotionally and practically.
