Topic: Kinship care
Author: Emma Young and Louise Hill
In 2019, the Family Rights Group (FRG) surveyed 845 kinship carers caring for 1,252 kinship children across the UK to help develop an in-depth understanding of the current experiences of carers and the children they are raising and produced an initial report, ‘The highs and lows of kinship care: analysis of a comprehensive survey of kinship carers 2019' (available below).
Following on from this CELCIS has undertaken supplementary analysis of the Scottish responses so as to provide a snapshot of Scotland’s kinship carers as well as an overview of the legal context of kinship care in Scotland.
