Kinship Response Service

The Kinship Response Service has been commissioned from the GrandParents Plus service by Stockton-on-Tees Local Authority. This has been made available through funding from the Department for Education via the Adoption Support Fund to support families during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kinship Response is a service provided by GrandParents Plus specifically for Special Guardians and it provides a service based on experience as many within GrandParents plus have first-hand experience of being a Kinship Carer.

The Kinship Response Service will enable you to talk to and share your experiences with others who are going through the same things and support you through stressful times and situations, such as family relationships and even your children's behaviour, and where you can get financial support.

You can sign up and use the service any time between now and 9th June 2021.
