Speak to someone like you
Want to chat to someone who understands what you’re experiencing as a kinship carer? Our specially trained kinship carer volunteers are here to listen through our free Someone Like Me service.
Due to exceptionally high demand and low numbers of volunteers, there is still a waiting list for Someone Like Me.
We’re very sorry for any convenience and we will match you as soon as possible.
If you think you have the time to volunteer to support other kinship carers, find out more how to get involved.
Talk to another kinship carer through our Someone Like Me service
We all have good days and bad days. We know that being a kinship carer can be hugely rewarding but sometimes emotionally tough. Through our Someone Like Me service we match you with another kinship carer, someone who can listen, understand and support you.
You can talk about your current experience and any issues you’re facing. All our volunteers are, or have been, kinship carers themselves so know the issues and difficulties you might be facing.
How can I sign up for the Someone Like Me peer support service?
It’s very easy, fill out the form below and we’ll try and match you based on your preferences.
