Mp Lobby day - Kinship Alliance

Woo Hoo, Off to London today to campaign, woo hoo, could be famous after this guys!
But i can rest assure you i will be keeping my clothes on, lol
I have a niggle in the back of my mind that i still haven't got my head round studying this week, yesterday was mad too, housework in the morning, meeting in the afternoon and bed early for my 5am wake up call this morning. Liz and i are styudy buddying for thursday and friday, so hoping i will feel better about my work come the weekend!

Anyway, I am campaigning for The Kinship care Alliance.

The Kinship Care Alliance is campaigning for greater recognition, respect and reward for family and friends (‘kinship’) carers. These carers, often grandparents, aunts or uncles, step in to care for vulnerable children when they cannot live with their parents. This may be because of parental alcohol or substance misuse, mental or physical ill health, domestic abuse, divorce or separation, imprisonment, bereavement and yet the carers often receive little or no financial or practical support. They and the children they care for are the forgotten families of family policy. We want to change that.
Best get ready.
