Launching the Inter-agency Global Guidance on Supporting Kinship Care

Family for Every Child

Family for Every Child launched its global inter-agency guidance on supporting kinship care aimed at policy makers and programme managers during this webinar on 1 February 2024.

Kinship care is defined as care in the extended family or with friends of the family. The guidance aims to convince governments, UN agencies and NGOs of the need to prioritise support to kinship care, and outlines the key components of this support, providing examples of promising practice. In this launch webinar Family for Every Child shared an overview of the guidance, the 2 year highly consultative process that led to its creation, and the key messages for audiences to take away. They also explored next steps for implementation and take up of the guidance, and invited participants to join them on a journey to embed the guidance in policy and practice.
