Kinship Care Learning Series #3 | Kinship care during emergencies and across borders

Filipe Meirelles
Filipe Meirelles Family for Every Child

Family for Every Child is running a series of webinars on kinship care. This is part of a broader work to collect examples of promising practices and develop global, inter-agency guidance on kinship care. The next webinar examines the importance of kinship care during emergencies and crisis periods and ways to support kinship care during these times.

The webinar will draw on learning from a project to support kinship care during COVID-19, the Beirut explosion, and political and economic crises in Lebanon. It will examine the support needs of Ukrainian refugees in kinship care in the UK. Cross-border placements into kinship care will also be explored, using examples from the UK to show how these placements can be effectively supported.
