Kindred campaigns on behalf of parents of children with complex needs.

Some of our campaigns are in collaboration with other organisations such as The Scottish Children’s Services Coalition (SCSC).

With the SCSC we have been campaigning to reduce waiting times for CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services),   and are also supporting a campaign to reinstate a bursary for trainee educational psychologists.

We have been working with Scottish Government NHS Scotland National Services Division and the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland to campaign for secure inpatient care for children and young people with learning disability.

Kindred is also campaigning for more special school provision across Scotland.

Families from Kindred have also met with Tam Baillie, the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland, to discuss complex care packages.  The first meeting was in November 2014 and we will continue to campaign for these families over the foreseeable future.

Below are some of the media articles reflecting some of our campaigning work.
