What We Do

Kinship Care Ireland provides information and support to kinship carers and to those who work closely with kinship families.

We advocate with and on behalf of kinship families, to highlight their needs and experiences.

We engage with family and child support services to assist them to ‘be there’ for kinship families within their own communities.

We make suggestions and submissions, through which we hope to ensure that the needs and rights of kinship families will be considered in policy making and practice development.

We run workshops and events to empower kinship carers in their vital role and to provide opportunities for kinship carers to meet each other.
