Big Hearts: Celebrates Scotland Kinship Care Week 2024

Leave a Comment

Kinship Care Week Scotland takes place from 11th to 15th March 2024. For the past 8 years Big Hearts has engaged with more than 600 families and over 1000 young people through our Kinship Care programme.

We are excited to share that our charity has secured a new 3-year funding towards our Kinship Care programme.  Thanks to a successful bid to The Robertson Trust, Big Hearts will receive a 5-figure grant allowing us to sustain the services available for young people and their carers.

This week, we kick-start the week with Big Hearts’ Big Breakfast on Monday 11th March. The event is open to experienced and new kinship carers and will be an informal morning with the opportunity to meet our staff team and share experiences with other carers. More information here.

What is Kinship Care?

Kinship Care is when a child lives full-time with a Grandparent, Great Grandparent, Uncle, Aunt, Sibling, other relative or family friend because they are unable to live with their parents. Kinship Carers provide love and security for children who would otherwise not be cared for within the family.

What support do we offer Kinship families?

At Big Hearts, we offer comprehensive support to address the emotional, practical, and financial challenges faced by young people and their carers. More information on the services available can be found here.
