Kinship Care Action Research Initiatives


Kinship care, otherwise known as care by relatives or family friends, is the most significant form of out-of-home care globally for children who are unable to live with their parents. While kinship care is the most common form of out-of-home care, it is also the care option least systematically recorded, monitored or supported. Given that most care givers   in poor families are likely to be struggling with poverty and lack of support. In India, there is no legislation or government policy of support kinship career. Most government support goes to institutional care and there is no agency or monitoring mechanism in place. YCDA in collaboration with EveryChild, Bangalore is engaged with an Action Research project with an objective understand the situation of children staying in kinship care arrangements and their violation of rights.
