We are a charity that works with parents whose children are in need, at risk or are in the care system and kinship carers. We run a free advice service for parents and wider family members and friends about their rights and options when social workers or courts make decisions about their children's welfare.

We promote policies and practices that keep children safe within their family and strengthen the family and support networks of those children who cannot live with their parents.  We recently facilitated the Care Crisis Review and we provide legal and policy expertise to the Kinship Care Alliance.
