Are you our new Chair?

Kindred is a vibrant organisation supporting 700 families of children with complex needs each year. We have 13 staff, 8 trustees and 3 offices (located in Fife, central Edinburgh and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People Edinburgh). During the pandemic we have taken a lead role in campaigning for the Covid-19 vaccine for carers, and calling on Scottish Government to keep special schools open. At Kindred we ‘walk the walk’: most of our staff and trustees are carers and we pride ourselves in our family friendly policies and our supportive work ethos. We hope you will join us as we begin strategic planning for 2022-2027.
