National Kinship Care Service

14th April 2020

The National Kinship Care Service for Scotland is fully operational during this period.  Our kinship care helpline and regional officers are available to assist you.  We continue to offer our full service and encourage any kinship carers to contact us for advice. In addition we will be updating our social media regularly and you can access our website for details of our service.  

Our service works in partnership with all Scottish bureaux and we can provide you with emergency advice and information on assistance required within your local area. 

Local authorities, Scottish Government and other third party organisations are actively updating their websites with information on action within their areas. Our service also provides you with the support to make contact and arrange for assistance.  

The kinship care service is available to kinship carers across Scotland.   Please contact us  Monday to Friday :  9 am - 5pm : 0808 800 0006.
