Kinship care, also called connected persons or family and friends care, is where children are looked after by people they already know. There are different types of kinship care - formal or informal.
All provide an opportunity for children to feel loved and cared for by people with whom they already have a connection.
However, there are special challenges in looking after related children. This course gives Family & Friends carers and those who support them a way to understand those challenges, and provides practical guidance on managing the difficult feelings and behaviour that often go with Family & Friends care.
