Kinship Care Group meet with MSP's

On 28th October the Poverty Truth Commission's Kinship Care working group met with Duncan McNeil MSP and Drew Smith MSP, with last minute apologies from Johann Lamont MSP, Jackie Baillie MSP and Dr Richard Simpson MSP. 

This group of Labour MSPs are keen to support the campaigns of Kinship Carers for the vulnerable children in their care to receive adequate allowances and services to enable their survival and give them an equal chance to children in foster and accomodated care.
Actions from the meeting included looking into setting up a cross party group on Kinship Care in recognition of that fact that Kinship Care is not currently addressed as part of Carers or Addiction strategies and need special attention.
