This briefing paper analysed microdata from the latest 2011 Census to map the number of children growing up in kinship care households. The study, led by researchers from Bristol’s Hadley Centre for Adoption and Foster Care Studies, found that the 7% growth in the kinship child population between 2001 and 2011 was more than three times that of the population growth rate of all children in England. document YOUNG PEOPLE'S VIEWS | Growing up in kinship care: Experiences as adolescents and outcomes in young adulthood ABSTRACT, Grandparents plus, 2017 By In In Care - kinship care

source Looks at the experiences and outcomes for young people growing up in kinship care. Findings from interviews with 53 young people aged 16-26 who had lived in kinship care for at least two years and 43 kinship carers include: outcomes for young people in kinship care were generally better than those for young people in other types of care, but not as good as in the general population; and many carers did not feel well supported in their caring role. Suggests kinship care should have the same status as other routes to permanence, and that there needs to be greater awareness of the situation of young people in kinship care.

site de rencontre czech UOB 13 The Poor Relations APR 13.pdf This report examines the child’s perspective of living in an informal kinship care setting and the views of their carers.   It provides insights into how well, both emotionally and academically, these children are doing, how this compares with children in the formal care system and what impact such arrangements have on both children and carers. It also gives an authoritative account of the financial hardship, sacrifice, isolation and the cost to health of the relatives bringing up children across the UK with little or no statutory support – often at very little notice.
