KCV Wellbeing Podcast #10 – Preparing for Access Visits

Access or contact visits with biological family can be challenging and may produce a range of emotions in children in kinship care families.

The visits can be formal or informal, and sometimes they are supervised by a professional, such as a child protection worker or agency worker, or even by the kinship carer themselves.

In this podcast, we speak with Adam Lyons, Managing Director of Lancaster Consulting, who addresses some of the more common issues carers face in preparing the children in their care for access visits and outlines strategies for debriefing children afterwards.



Kinship Carers Victoria is the peak body for kinship carers in in Victoria. KCV’s aim is to have kinship carers in Victoria supported in their role according to their needs and the needs of the children they care for.  KCV’s mission is to ensure that kinship care leads to positive outcomes for the children and young people raised in kinship care placements.
