Friends and Family Care Policy

The Family and Friends Care Policy provides information for family and friends carers and those in contact with them, to understand the duties and responsibilities involved, the types of services available, where to go for further information and the support that carers are entitled to.

When children and young people are unable, for whatever reason, to live with their parents, family and friends carers can play a unique role in caring for them and enabling them to remain with people who they know and trust.
