We will always use the power of the club’s crest to support families who really, really need our help. The first area of support we are focussed on is to Kinship Care Families.
What is Kinship Care?
If a looked after child cannot remain with their birth parents they can be placed by a local authority in the care of family or friends, for either a short or long period of time. This is what is commonly known as Kinship care.
Why Kinship Care?
Children in kinship care typically experience multiple disadvantages and are likely to have experienced some form of abuse or neglect. Yet despite unique challenges, research demonstrates positive outcomes for children in kinship care.
