Podcasts for Carers

Victorian kinship carers podcast series

The series is directed at the rapidly increasing number of kinship carers across Victoria and brings broadcast news relevant to all kinship carers, be they formal or informal carers, and be they grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings or close family friends.

Mrs Anne McLeish, Director of Kinship Carers Victoria (KCV) said,

‘These podcasts are designed to reach all kinship carers at their convenience; that is, in their own home and at times which suit them. The issues addressed will be of interest to formal and informal kinship carers alike, and will lift their understanding and knowledge about their role and the social, economic and political circumstances that affect them in their role as people who protect our most vulnerable children from further harm.

Kinship Carers Victoria is particularly pleased to be able to reach all kinship carers through these podcasts. They will provide a way for the most geographically and socially isolated carers to have a connection with the wider world with regard to their role and the views of other kinship carers. KCV hopes that kinship carers will take the opportunities offered to them to nominate issues they want examined and to give feedback about the podcast programs. If the programs benefit even a small number of previously isolated kinship carers it will be well worth the effort to produce them,’ Mrs. McLeish concluded.
