Getting it right for every kinship child

KCM SCIO – What We Do

Our charity is always available –
on the telephone – a kinship carer will answer your call
online or by email – a kinship carer will reply to your enquiry or
in our office premises in Dalkeith.
We’re always happy to share and talk about our experiences, work and the services we provide as frontline kinship carers .  The team of kinship carers in KCM-SCIO have a wealth of experience and knowledge about raising a kinship child. We publish our own useful pamphlets and books for the benefit of our peers describing our own experiences of dealing with our kinship children.
Our “home grown” publications also describe our individual dealings with the Local Authority plus attendance at “Looked After and Accommodated Child” (LAAC) Reviews, Children’s Panels and/or meetings with solicitors that specialise in Family Law. KCM-SCIO also delivers individual peer support assistance directing and advising kinship carers to other charities offering and delivering services to kinship carers.

Are you a kinship carer – or could you be? Are you caring for a friend or relative’s child without intervention from the Local Authority – “a family arrangement”?
Are you permanently looking after your grandchildren but not receiving anything towards their upkeep?
Are you a loyal friend caring for a child or children that are not biologically connected to your family?
If you can answer ‘YES’ to any of the aforementioned questions we could help you cope with your situation or guide you in the right direction for professional assistance.
