Kin Raising Kids Tasmania

Established, governed and managed by ‘Kin Raising Kids’ for kinship carers.

KRK envisages all children and young people in Tasmania being raised in safe and happy homes.

Kin Raising Kids Tasmania Inc. envisages that all children in out-of-home care are raised within their biological family where practical and supported to have the children’s acute needs met.


KRK (Tas) will work to have its vision realised by:

  • Establishing a kinship care network across Tasmania
  • Representing the collective views of kinship carers, including grandparent kinship carers, to decision makers
  • Raising public awareness of the pressures and advantages of kinship care
  • Referring kinship carers to a range of services relevant to their needs
