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.

A story by Renfrewshire Carers Centre
We ran a variety of fun outings during the school holidays for families with a child with disabilities providing fun and stimulating activities for the children. Working parent carers and carers under stress had the opportunity to receive respite helping them stay in employment and/or get a break from their caring role.
