KCN are excited to announce an exciting new partnership with Kingstonian Football Club. We have teamed up to facilitate better carer awareness in the community and there are a range of benefits available to members of Kingston Carers' Network.

Kingstonian are offering:

  • Concessionary entrance for adult carers. There is already a concession for when carers accompany a disabled person but the club will also now allow a concessionary entrance to adult carers in their own right. This will be for carers in receipt of Carers Allowance and members of Kingston Carers Network or a "carers centre" in the area that the match opponents come from.
  • "Kids for Free" under 16 season tickets for young carers.
  • to circulate information about young carers support to youth team members.

YoungMinds is working with NHS England to support the participation of parents and carers in improving mental health services for children and young people.

The Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme (referred to as CYP IAPT) within NHS England recognises that parents have a critical role to play in shaping and informing the services that are offered to children and young people.

YoungMinds will be working with the CYP IAPT National Programme Team and the five regional hubs that currently work with 82 CAMHS partnerships (this includes Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, CAMHS, in the NHS, voluntary organisations and local authorities and includes the 15 new partnerships recruited in 2014) to develop excellent practice involving parents to improve:

  • joint decision making around the type of treatment received by the child or young person
  • availability and accessibility of services
  • overall experience and opportunities to feedback and comment on services

YoungMinds will work with all of the partners involved to ensure services take on board what parents say about what works to improve service delivery on the ground. All materials and resources will be co-developed and tested thoroughly with parents.

YoungMinds will be developing and publishing an online toolkit that will help services build the case for, and implement, effective parent participation.


Key themes emerging from initial research and conversations with parents are presented in a short powerpoint presentation.

YoungMinds have grouped the experiences and ideas under 5 headings:

  • Communications
  • Access and Equality & Diversity
  • Leadership and Service Development
  • Workforce development
  • Engagement methods.


YoungMinds are looking for parents to be involved in this work with us to help shape and inform what they do.
