Further demonstrations about Kinship Care in Glasgow

KINSHIP Carers also protested last week ahead of the Local Council elections at the official opening of the Maryhill Burgh Halls
Local News Glasgow reported on the demonstration saying 'VIPs arriving had to walk past an array of banners held by determined grannies demanding justice for Kinship Carers.'

The Lord Provost came and stood with them in their protest and had his photograph taken with them commenting I saw them earlier today at the City Chambers and support them.’

One of the Kinship Carer's, Liz Lynch, commented in the article '
If we fostered a stranger’s child we’d get £300 a week to look after them. Because the children are family, we get £50 a week and none of the important psychological help.’
