Teen parents? Awesome parents!
We believe that teen parenting can be positive and empowering, if young people are supported to develop the skills and confidence they need to be awesome parents.
If you’re under 19 and expecting a baby, we may be able to provide you with some specialist support.
Through our teen parenting programme, a teenage parent case worker will work with you to develop your own goal plan, drawing on your strengths, passions, beliefs and values. They also help you understand and build confidence in all the stuff you will need to know to bring up baby, including:
- managing a household
- parenting programmes
- housing support
- antenatal and postnatal care
- training and education programmes
- specialist and social support
- income and budgeting support.
The aim is for you to be healthy and well supported – and for baby to grow well, be healthy and meet all their developmental milestones.
Need support? Contact us today and we’ll put you in touch with the teen parenting team.
