Young Parent's Group
We have a specialist Young Parent’s Worker who delivers a bespoke Young Parent’s Programme and also provides mediation for young parents. Many parenting programmes that are offered to young parents work with either Mam or Dad separately, ours is a little bit different. Although we do work with Mams and Dads individually when needed, our Young Parent’s Programme is for both parents so they can learn and explore parenting together, something not offered anywhere else. Another aspect of this role is to provide mediation to young parents in times of need. This can be between parents, family, or mediating with professionals if necessary.
Groups are help on a weekly basis with support sessions delivered that meet the needs of the group, for example benefit claims, childcare arrangements and accessing mental health support, and also practical sessions which have included independent living, cooking on a budget and safe sleeping.
