Parents as Partners

The five values at the heart of Time for Kids are equally important when thinking about how we can support those around a child or young person…

What is Parents as Partners?

When we talk about Time for Kids, part of it’s strength is that we can all understand the values and the aspiration behind them – the values are true for all of us. We all need these things in order to thrive. We all need that human connection, to be able trust in others, a place we belong, hope and a belief in what we can do.

Parents as Partners* encourages us to think how can we use these values to think from the perspective of a parent or carer? How can we support parents/carers to better support the children and young people in their care? If we start to think about these values through those different perspectives we can start that chain reaction.

(*although we say “parents”, we mean this in its widest sense – including carers, guardians, grandparents etc. – i.e. the main caregiver in a child or young person’s life!)
