Short films for kinship carers

Kitchen conversations

We asked broadcaster Gary Robertson – who many will know from BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland – to host an informal discussion with kinship carers, call takers and staff from our Kinship Care helpline.

In these kitchen conversations, Gary explores the topics of family conflict, stress and attachment.

Starting a kinship care group

In the video below, kinship carers describe the benefits of kinship care groups and give advice on how to organise a group.

In 2013, we produced a series of short films on issues affecting kinship carers - financial advice, substance misuse, dealing with challenging behaviour and Curriculum for Excellence.

The films were made with help from Citizens Advice Scotland, Mentor UK and Education Scotland.
