Young Parents Health & Wellbeing

young parents health & wellbeing project

One to one support……as and when needed 

Becoming a parent can be one of the most exciting times of your life and also one of your most precious achievements.   

Sometimes life brings us unexpected challenges and we may need a little support around those times. 

The T-natal project can offer one to one support or just someone to talk to around those issues….at any time!!  

The support we offer can include: 

    • Making decisions about pregnancy (options counselling) 
    • Practical support around preparing for baby arriving  
    • Information and support around basic care of baby and routines.  
    • Roles & responsibilities of parenting  
    • Safe relationships and sexual health 
    • Support with benefits and applying for housing 
    • Returning to education and accessing childcare 
    • Volunteering opportunities, gaining skills for employment.
