Kinship carers

Tell us about the children you’re so proud of, or is there a friend, support group or partner who has been there for you during the tough times, who you would like to publicly thank?

Support groups and charities

Share pictures of your Kinship Care Week celebration events and activities. We want to share what everyone’s doing.

Raised in kinship care?

Tell us about what your gran, grandad, brother or aunty means to you.

Do you work with kinship families?

Children and Families teams or others supporting kinship families, why not send a message of support and thanks to the kinship carers in your area for raising children when their parents can’t. Or share photos of your celebration activities.

As well as submitting your message of support to kinship families, which will be shared with the world, please post on your own social media channels about #KinshipCareWeek during 4-10 October. We’ve produced some posts, banners and sample tweets that you can use to show your support.
