Across Scotland, thousands of people, such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends, care for children because their parents are unable to do so or have passed away.
If you are looking after a child full-time or most of the time, you are a kinship carer.
Kinship 4 Kids is a peer support group where kinship carers can discuss issues that affect their lives and get support from other group members. The group also does fund-raising activities for the benefit of the children and their families.
Kinship 4 Kids meets every second Friday at the new Community Centre, starting May 2, from 10am to 1pm. Please come and join the group for a chat and coffee.
