Support for kinship carers

Caring for others is one of the most overlooked and unvalued roles in our society.  It forms an integral part of the core economy (read more about this from New Economics Foundation here), and yet seldom gets the notice or treatment from political structures that it requires and deserves.

Children 1st have helped produce the manifesto for Kinship care in Scotland, which you can read here: Kinshipcare manifesto 2012.

They have asked all candidates to pledge to support kinship carers.  I think this is very important, and if re-elected, will certainly do what I can to ensure kinship carers get the support from Edinburgh Council that they need.
