I would like to draw your attention to the linked service leaflet – the ‘Pregnancy & Parenting Support Service’ offered by One Family to young expectant mothers and fathers as well as to young people already parenting and who have resided in care, or who are currently in care.
The service is funded by The Crisis Pregnancy Programme and is offered to clients at no cost.
The service offers emotional and practical supports with an overall aim of supporting parents to successfully navigate the first two years of their child’s life. Examples of supports offered include one-to-one parenting supports, support around shared parenting and advocacy in relation to social welfare and housing departments. Young parents engaging with this service may also wish to available of the full range of services on offer at One Family, for example, counselling services, welfare to work programmes, education & training.
