Relative Caregiver Program Workgroup

The goal of the Relative Caregiver Program Workgroup is to raise awareness about the many people who are raising their relatives' children in the absence of the parents.  These family members and the children they are raising need help and support.  There are a number of resources that are available to support these caregivers, but there is a lack of knowledge about these resources and where to access them. 

 

The key activities of this workgroup in 2021 are to:

  • create and implement a public awareness campaign to increase awareness of relative caregivers,
  • compile available resources that are available to assist them, and
  • offer a virtual speaker series for professionals and relative caregivers.
