Kinship Care advice service for Scotland

All across Scotland, thousands of people care for children because their natural parents are unable to do so. These are often grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and siblings or family friends. People who look after children in these kinds of circumstances are known as “Kinship Carers”.
