We want to make it easy for you to get the help you need from the Kinship Care Service.  Here’s how you can get in touch with us:

  • Advice in person from your local Citizens Advice Bureau. To find your nearest Citizens Advice Bureau visit
  • Contact your regional officer
  • Call the Kinship Care Helpline on 0808 800 0006, 9.00am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday.  Outwith operating hours, please leave a short message and your contact details and you will be called within 24 hours Monday to Friday.

We also welcome enquiries from agencies who support kinship care families. Complete the contact form below, or contact the appropriate regional officer.

If you do not live in Scotland you can get advice from Citizens Advice in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. This project can of course help with cross-border kinship care arrangements but has no particular expertise in dealing with enquiries outwith Scotland.
