This group is led by a kinship carer and supported by a Kinship volunteer coordinator. The group is open to all kinship carers in the Shipley area.

When and where we meet

We meet: Monthly

First Thursday of every month – 12pm-2pm

Location: Noble Comb, Quayside, Salts Mill Road, Shipley, BD17 7ED

Who we are

We are a diverse group with experience and knowledge of different kinships, such as kinship foster care and special guardianship. We are here to help grandparents, aunties, uncles, and friends of family who are kinship carers or are in the process of looking after children that for whatever reason the parents can’t look after them either in the short term or long term.

The group used to be run by a Kinship staff member as part of the Kinship Connected support service but is now led by James who is a kinship carer.

Please note – Children can attend the group during holidays and special events.
