Kinship Care: State of the Nation 2017

This report is based on a survey of members of the Grandparents Plus Kinship Care Support Network, which includes almost 4,000 kinship carers. The results are based on responses from 671 kinship carers living in England and Wales, making it the largest ever survey of its kind. Carried out in February 2017 using both online and postal questionnaires, the survey explores the experiences of kinship carers, especially the support they receive and identifies significant unmet support needs.
