Kinship care

www.childandfamily-sa.org.au / sector / kinship-care

Kinship carers are people who care for children who are either related to them or who have a relationship with the child, their family or community. When a child is unable to live with their birth family, Families SA will try to find a relative or kinship carer, recognising the im-portance of the child maintaining a connection with their family and community. The kinship care program is managed directly by DECD/Families SA.
