Creative Kin is a three-year project (2020 – 2023) bringing together artists and kinship families in North Ayrshire.

Once lockdown restrictions have lifted  Starcatchers  will deliver weekly creative sessions for young children and their kinship families, creating magical, joyful and energising experiences through art and imaginative play.  

In the meantime, we are offering a variety of ways to support creativity at home : 

  • Activity packs delivered to your door to give you all something to do while you are staying at home.  
  • Videos and ideas for creative play digitally, through our Facebook group. 

This project builds on Creative Kin 2017-19, which showed that this approach has a positive impact on the relationships between kinship carers and the children they care for.

Creative Kin is delivered in partnership with Children 1st and North Ayrshire Council, funded by The National Lottery Improving Lives, The RS Macdonald Charitable Trust, and Scottish Power Foundation.
