2021 Cross Party Parliamentary Taskforce Update

Aim: Kinship Carers Liverpool  led on bringing families together from the North West with meetings/conversations and consultations to have their voices heard and tell their stories in order to produce this comprehensive report.

Outcome: This is a very important piece of work and one that will allow positive changes to be made and give the deserved recognition to Kinship Families.  We are vey proud of the huge contribution our families made to this report published in September 2020

Our 2018 Baring Foundation funded work, reviewing the human rights of kinship families, was ground-breaking & the recommendations have recently been reflected nationally in the Cross-Party Parliamentary Task Force (PTF) that has been set up to look at the needs of kinship families – coordinated nationally by the Family Rights Group (frg.org.uk; @KinshipCarePT). Its virtual launch opened with a short video which included our kin young people’s voices.
