Please join Kinship Carers from across Scotland outside the Scottish Parliament on Friday 20th June at midday to tell the Scottish Government to stop their plans to continue discrimination against children in kinship care in the new Children and Young People Act.
Please be there in your numbers with placards and banners and loud voices!
We will be telling the Scottish Government:
– to stop discriminating between children in kinship care and foster care in the new Children and Young People Act.
– to stop plans to reduce, or fail to increase basic support services and financial allowances for kinship children in poverty and affected by trauma in the new Act.
– that this discrimination is a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights, articles 8 and 14.
– that ALL children in kinship care should be treated the same as comparable children in foster care with the same access to services and support.
Our full response to the Scottish Government’s Secondary Legislation can be seen here. We will be highlighting these points at the demonstration.
Please share this far and wide on facebook, twitter and email!
