Bringing Kin Together
A story by West Dunbartonshire Kinship Carers
We organised a 4 day holiday to Flamingo Land West Yorkshire for Kinship Carer’s and their families living in West Dunbartonshire. Their first ever
Their first ever holiday it was a time for the children to bond and make new frienships with children of the same circumstances to better their daily lives and show that they are not “alone” in kinship. We are a support group in West Dunbartonshire who provide support and a listening ear to carers in the region
Flamingo Land Family Easter Break
A story by Kinship for the Future (North)
Kinship Carers and the children they care for went on a short break to Flamingo Land during the Easter Break in 2016 from Monday to Friday.
The families took part in various activities during the break such as swimming, the Zoo and the entertainment sessions. The peer support provided helped the carers cope better and the break improved their mental and physical well-being.
Our group Kinship for the Future (North) is a peer support group which campaigns for improvements for Kinship Carers. We hold weekly support meetings in the north of Glasgow.
