As caregivers, you have the right to seek help from the city council, such as.B. one-time payments, other care of the child during a break. When a relative receives family benefits, the local authority may deduct them from the amount of assistance it pays to caregivers. Municipal councils must provide kinship care assistance in a manner that protects, supports and promotes the well-being of a legitimate child. You don`t have to be a parent of a child to be a caregiver, but you do need to have a pre-existing relationship with the child. For example, you may be a family friend. Informal agreements are concluded between the child`s parents (or any other person who has parental responsibility) and the parent. Sometimes there is no clear agreement – for example, a parent left the child with his family and did not return for them.

Family members in England are also known as family assistants and friends and/or related persons. There are different possibilities for a child to live with a guardian, depending on the relationship between the child and his or her guardian, the degree of participation in the local authority and, if applicable, the nature of the court order. If you are a family nurse, think that you might become one or that you have moved away from yourself, your right is to ask the board what practical and financial support they can provide for kinship care. According to the Looked After Children (Scotland) Regulations 2009, a kinship is defined as „a person related to the child (by blood, marriage or life partnership) or a person with whom the child has a pre-existing relationship“. Most children are related because their parents are not able to care for them. Our research shows that about half of children (52%) are in kinship care due to parental drug or alcohol abuse, although other reasons are bereavement, imprisonment, parental abuse or neglect, and parental health. . . .
