Understanding trauma, Caring for Children and Young People in Kinship Care During COVID-19

It has been produced by the Kinship Care forum as a reposnse to concerns Kinship Carers have been telling us they have regarding the chaged behaviours of the children they care for. Children may be doing things or showing feelings that are different than usual, appearing to regress in their behaviour, chatting back more, needing more or less attention, hiding in their room, not adhering to agreed rules or pushing the boundaries more. The guidance sheet will give inforamtion about how to respond and cope with these behaviours. Although this resource was produced as  result of coronavirus the information contained within the giudance sheet is relevant in everyday situations.
