Kinship (formerly Grandparents Plus)

< Back to directory


Kinship is the leading kinship care charity in England and Wales. We’re here for all kinship carers – the grandparents and siblings, the aunts, uncles, and family friends who step up to raise children when their parents can’t.

We won’t rest until every kinship family has the recognition and support they need and deserve.

  • Peer-to-Peer Support Service: A new Peer-to-Peer Support Service for all kinship carers in England, funded by the Department for Education and led by Kinship.
  • Information and Advice: They provide information and advice about kinship career whether you are an informal kinship carer, have a Special Guardianship Order, Child Arrangement Order or Care Order
  • Kinship Reach: One-to-one support to kinship carers around issues such as their emotional distress, children’s behaviour, housing or family relationships.
