Peterborough Kinship Care Support Service

Adfam ran a pilot project funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to support kinship carers affected by the criminal justice system. Kinship carers are family members, most commonly grandparents, but also aunts, uncles, siblings and others, who take on the care of a child because the parents are unable to.

Based at HMP Peterborough, the service provided one-to-one practical and emotional support to those caring for a family member’s child whose parent is in HMP Peterborough, or living in Peterborough and otherwise involved in the criminal justice system.

Support was provided at home as well as by phone and email.
