What is it?
The Outreach Young Parent Support Service is for mums and dads up to 24 years, including expectant young parents, and their children. The service was established in 2000.
We work in partnership with Lambeth Primary Care Trust and other services. We also receive referrals from many different voluntary organisations as well as self-referrals by young parents who hear about us from friends.
Who is it for?
Young Parents Outreach is for mums and dads who may need support to make the move to being a parent. They may need extra support with housing, health, benefits, training, childcare and parenting
Where and when does the young parent service happen?
We offer highly bespoke 1 to 1 support as needed by the individual mum or dad, and weekly groups throughout the year at different Lambeth Children’s Centres.
We meet complex needs
Often the parents we support have had difficult childhoods. Some parents may have spent some time in care with little experience of good parenting themselves. This could mean that they don’t have positive role models on which to base their own parenting. During pregnancy, some mothers and fathers can be unsure of what decisions to make or where to go for support: which we can provide.
