KEEP - Keeping foster and kinship carers supported

KEEP is a group training programme which aims to increase the parenting skills of foster and kinship carers in responding to children's difficulties, reducing placement disruption and improving child outcomes. 

KEEP was designed and developed by Dr Patricia Chamberlain and colleagues at the Oregon Social Learning Center in the USA.
