Life Changes and My Life Now Group


Becoming a kinship carer changes the life that you had before. This is a space for kinship carers to meet and talk to other kinship carers who have experienced a feeling of loss for the life they left behind. This could be the loss of a relationship, friendship, job, property, health or the future life you thought you might have. This monthly group is led by Kinship and meets online using Zoom.

"I found these sessions [about the life I left behind/used to have] invaluable for understanding why I was feeling so angry and stuck. And to take stock of what was important and valuable for me."

Special interest groups

As part of developing groups for kinship carers to come together, we heard that some carers would like to meet other carers that they may have additional things in common with, as well as kinship care.

See our other special interest groups.
