The Kinship Care Advice Service for Scotland remains open at this time. If you have a query please contact the helpline on 0808 800 0006 or use the contact us page of this website to ask for a call back or an email message.

To adhere to the lockdown advised by the Scottish Government all of our workers are at home with the resources available to provide telephone and email support. If you are worried about your benefits, remaining at home or other day to day concerms please contact us. If you have had contact with a regional Kinship Care officer they will also be able to provide support at this time.

Last week was Kinship Care week and we were pleased with the press coverage we recieved although it was a little overshadowed by Coronavirus. 

Citizens Advice Scotland were active on twitter throughout the week with 2 tweets per day and articles on the CAS Fcebook page.
