The Relative Experience Project is a partnership between three national charities – Grandparents Plus, Family Lives and the Family and Childcare Trust (FCT).
Grandparents Plus champions the role of grandparents and the wider family in children’s lives – especially when they take on the caring role in difficult family circumstances. We co-ordinate a support network for all family members raising a relative’s child, run a dedicated advice line, organise events and campaign to ensure the vital role of kinship carers is recognised and supported.
Family Lives is a national charity providing help and support in all aspects of family life. We’re here for you seven days a week through our free Parentline. Call 0808 800 2222, email us, live chat with a trained support worker or share your story on our forums. Whatever your family role or situation, we can help.
The Family and Childcare Trust (FCT) aims to make the UK a better place for families, through research, campaigning and information provision, and working with government, employers and parents to reduce pressures on family life.
