Kinship Care

Fostering family ties.

Kinship care is the preferred placement type for children who cannot live with their parents.

Kinship care

Keeping children within families.

Kinship care is provided by relatives or a member of a child or young person’s social network when they cannot live with their parents.

Placement with relatives or kin is often the first option considered when a child cannot safely remain in their parents’ home or cannot be reunited with them.

Our Kinship Care program provides carers with information and advice on financial, legal and community support to negotiate the challenges of taking on care of your new family member.

You can also participate in cooking groups and other social activities and support groups.
