Our Offer

What Kinship Carers Liverpool can provide – our offer:

  • Someone to talk with about your current kinship role and any challenges you may be facing. Our experienced team members can do this through phone and/or face to face support, providing advice, information and signposting to relevant services related to your concerns or issues related to caring for a kin child. Call us to arrange a convenient time to meet or have a chat on the phone.
  • Free information pages on a range of kinship issues on our website:
    • about kinship care: what it is and how you can get support
    • guidance about how to contact local services/the local authority to get support
    • signposting and resources to help in relation to education, early help and well-being support for yourself and you kin child/young person
    • links to national kinship organisations and resources
    • a listing of local legal advice including free Law Clinics
    • information about Legal Aid and how to find out if you are eligible
  • A full Kinship Activities Programme for kin families, carers and children/young people with a calendar of events – and remember, you don’t have to get involved as a family. Many carers come along first to meet others with the same circumstances.
  • A link to other kinship carers: through our programme of events and support – so you can relax and talk to others who understand: they are also caring for their kin kids.

What We Can’t Provide:

  • Specific legal advice on child or family law – but we can signpost you to local legal advice in the city – including some free (pro bono) Law Clinic support.
  • Legal representation in court.
  • Detailed advice on financial matters – but we can signpost you to local agencies that can help you with this.
