Volunteer with us

Volunteer with us!

Volunteers are the heart of Kinship Carers UK, and central to delivering our services and support to all kinship carers throughout the UK.  Kinship Carers UK was established by kinship carers volunteers and is still effectively run by kinship volunteers who are the heart and soul of our charity. 

We promote opportunities for specific volunteer roles that are inclusive, flexible, challenging, and ambitious, as well as enjoyable.

Volunteer for Kinship Carers UK

Our volunteers carry out a range of roles supporting our work with kinship carers. This could be making regular telephone calls to other kinship carers or being involved in a leading a Support Group both virtually and face to face. There are roles suitable for everyone such as, youth work, a variety of administration roles, social media and the vital work of raising awareness.

Why kinship care families need specialised and consistent support

Stable kinship care families mean less children going into state care.  However, given the multiple challenges they face, they can’t do it without YOUR consistent support.

Why volunteer?

As a volunteer, the time you give really does matter. Without the support of volunteers, we couldn’t do what we do. If you’d like to help and make a difference to kinship carers and their families, we’d love to hear from you. 

Kinship volunteers are a diverse group of people, and we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and abilities, who are over the age of 18. We welcome and actively encourage volunteers who are or have experience as a kinship carer.
