New guidance to support the implementation of Part 13 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, and on the associated Kinship Care Assistance (Scotland) Order 2016. The guidance is split into two parts:
It explains what kinship care assistance is, who is eligible and how it is to be made available. It also sets out the duties of local authorities to provide kinship care assistance.
The guidance was developed by Scottish Government in collaboration with CELCIS.
