Kinship Care is the full-time parenting of children by grandparents, older siblings, aunts, uncles, and
other relatives or close friends of the family. It occurs for many reasons, for example; the death of a
parent, parental substance misuse, abandonment, illness, or imprisonment. Kinship care can be
formal, when children are in the care of the state with kinship/ relative foster carers or informal,
outside of the care system. The primary focus of KCI is the support of informal kinship carers.
Kinship Care Ireland was established in 2019 and is hosted by Treoir, the information service for
unmarried parents and their children.
Kinship Care Ireland (KCI) recognises that Kinship families face unique challenges over and above the
regular demands of parenting and thus require specialist supports. KCI is working towards developing
supports, advocacy, and services for Kinship families throughout Ireland. The overall objectives of KCI
➢ Supporting kinship families
➢ Campaigning for change
➢ Sustaining Kinship Care Ireland into the future.
