Who is this workshop for?
All our workshops are open to kinship carers living in England and Wales. A kinship carer is someone who has stepped in to raise a child or children when their parents can’t.
If you live in Wales, not all the information in this workshop will be relevant, but it might still be helpful.
This workshop is specifically for kinship carers whose children are eligible for the adoption support fund (ASF). The adoption support fund is available for children who:
- were in care immediately before a special guardianship order (SGO) was made
- left care under a SGO which subsequently was changed to an adoption order, or vice versa
- are under a residence order or child arrangement order (CAO) and were previously looked after
- were previously looked after but where the adoption, special guardianship, residence or CAO placement has broken down, irrespective of any reconciliation plans
