Why kinship care?

Why kinship care?

Where an out-of-home care placement is required for a child or young person, the consideration of a suitable kinship carer should be the preferred option before any other placement is pursued. Kinship care involves relatives or members of a child’s social network being approved to provide accommodation and care until restoration can occur, or long-term care plans are made. Kinship care is targeted at children aged 0-18 years subject to involvement with child protection agencies and who are assessed as requiring out-of-home care.
