Kinship Care Advice Service for Scotland


Kinship Carers are Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Siblings, other relatives and or family friends who step in to take care of a child who is unable to live with their parents. Kinship carers provide love and security for children who would otherwise not be cared for within the family.

We will provide a service that offers high quality advice and guidance in appropriate ways through appropriate channels at appropriate times through:

  • Providing a dedicated telephone helpline and email service for Kinship Families offering emotional support, practical, financial and legal advice
  • Providing advice and tailored information for Kinship Families through the dedicated Kinship.Scot website
