Bromley shows appreciation for kinship carers

Published Monday, 7 October 2019

Bromley connected persons and special guardianship team in partnership with Grandparents Plus supports kinship carers and special guardians by providing guidance and connecting them with each other.

Kinship care is the care given to a child whose parents are unable to provide care and support. This responsibility is then taken on by a relative or friend, known as the child’s special guardian or connected person foster carer. Bromley connected persons and special guardianship team are hosting an afternoon tea for connected persons foster carers and special guardians on 8 October 2019 at the Bromley Civic Centre, to say a huge thank you to all connected carers and special guardians for what they do for the children in their care. 

This appreciation event is inspired by Kinship Care Week taking place from the 5 October – 11 October 2019. This is an opportunity to raise awareness on the wide range of support available, including our therapeutic service and carer-led peer support service known as chill & chat.

If you  would like to attend, call 020 8461 7193 or email Connectedpersonduty@bromley.gov.uk
