    I was interested to read about your organization. I am Citizens Advice Kinship Care Co-ordinator covering Glasgow and South West Scotland, my contact number is 01387 739508 with a helpline on 08088000006 if I am out of the office. If you would like me to come to one of your meetings for advice or just general support and a chat, do not hesitate to call.
