Kinship Carers Victoria’s podcast series for carers – podcast #11
Kinship Carers Victoria recently released the eight report on their longitudinal study of kinship carer families.
In this podcast, Director of KCV Anne McLeish discusses why the study was established, as well as providing an analysis of the latest report findings, which show that, for the most part, kinship care arrangements for the families in the study continue to be stable.
