We want to hear from you about being a kinship carer in 2019!
Our yearly State of the Nation survey helps give us a better picture of what it's like to be a kinship carer and to gather evidence of where more support and understanding is needed. This helps us to develop services to better support kinship carers as well as raise awareness of kinship care in the media and among decision makers and drive change.
This year our survey focuses on the experience of first becoming a kinship carer. We'd love to hear from you about your own circumstances, the difficulties you faced and what you'd like to see improved for kinship carers when they first take on the role. With the results of this survey, we aim to build a clear sense of the complexity and challenges of kinship care and use this understanding to fight for better support for kinship carers.
This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please give as much detail as possible so we can better understand your experiences as a kinship carer.
