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.
