Kinship Hub is a social enterprise seeking to redress the imbalance in services provided to kinship carers across the UK.
Our main aims are:
Providing access to training and support around specialist topics in relation to kinship care
Reducing social isolation and improving the mental health of kinship carers
Addressing food poverty experienced by kinship families
Increased access to therapeutic support, including therapeutic parenting interventions
Enabling kinship carers to obtain catering qualifications and offer work opportunities within the catering industry
Kinship Hub believes in working in partnership with other community organizations and statutory services that come into contact with kinship families. We are aware that we are part of a larger system and we can best make a difference if we all work together.
We're honoured to have been featured as an agency that is helping to break community isolation for individuals in the Community Connections Lewisham's latest video (from 1:43 minute mark):
