Key messages for Kinship Care in Northern Ireland

Jacqueline's report was launched at a well-attended event at the Verbal Arts Centre in Derry, Northern Ireland. 

Speakers at the launch included Councillor Kevin Campbell, Mayor of Derry; Councillor April Garfield-Kidd and Pat Armstrong of the Western Health & Social Care Trust. These speakers were joined by Leon Clowes, who talked eloquently about being adopted by his grandparents, and three kinship carers Patrick Hosey, Fionnula Harbinson and Susan Craig who shared their compelling stories of caring.

The research is the culmination of Jacquie’s Clore Social Fellowship, bringing together her knowledge, experience and extensive connections in the field of ‘kinship care’. The report makes a number of robust recommendations for future funding and support for kinship carers in Northern, and was described as a “timely contribution” by Pat Armstrong of the Western Health & Social Care Trust. Jacqueline also wrote a number of policy breifs alongside her research.
