A proud kinship carer of three, Director of the not-for-profit Kinship Carers UK, and a member of Family Rights Group Kinship Panel. Donna is generating awareness and seeking change for future kinship carers. Donna has experienced firsthand the joys but also the challenges of kinship care. A kinship carer twice over, experiencing difficult, yet different challenges each time with different court proceedings. When Donna first became a kinship carer there was no information or place to turn to for help, resulting in a poorly supported child placement. The kinship journey that Donna and her family went on, and are still on is stressful, one that she wishes no other family to go through alone without support. She wants to generate awareness to normalise the terminology for the increasing number of Kinship Care families.
