Kinship Care Research

December 17, 2018

Child Frontiers is producing a regional synthesis report that makes the case for meeting kinship carers’ needs as an important, and cost effective, option for care widely preferred by children and families. The work will entail reviewing global literature, with specific data from Africa and review of national reports and incorporate findings into a regional report. The main questions to address in the report are: how is kinship care defined and used locally; what are the successes and challenges of kinship care; and what support is needed for kinship care to thrive. Detailed research sub-questions have also been developed, along with a research protocol to guide in country literature reviews and consultations with kinship families and key informants.
