Grandparents Plus is the national kinship care charity. We provide advice, information and peer support for kinship carers. Kinship carers are family members or friends who step in to care for children who cannot live with their birth parents, often because of very difficult family circumstances, including parental death or serious illness, drug or alcohol misuse, abuse or neglect, imprisonment or domestic violence. We do this because we want to make children’s lives better.
Grandparents Plus is committed to transforming support for kinship carers and their children, including through our research and influencing activities, our advice service, and the expansion of our kinship carer support programmes.
