Are you a Kinship Carer?

Are you a Kinship Carer?
Do you know what a Kinship Carer is?

I was luck enough to meet with one of the Kinship Carer groups in Wallsend and over the next few weeks you will be introduced to them, find out why they do what they do and hear some of their individual stories.

But firstly what is a Kinship Carer? They are connected adults in a child’s or children’s life that step up to look after them if their birth parents can not. This could be for many reasons and most stories are different.
