What is the Young Parents Support Service?

The Young Parents Support Service provides assistance and advocacy for at risk young people up to 25 years old, who are pregnant or have children.

Risk factors that may qualify someone for the service include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Age and developmental stage of the young parent
  • Level of family, partner and other supports during pregnancy and initial stages of parenting
  • Presence of mental wellbeing concerns and any substance misuse, homelessness or inadequate housing
  • Safety concerns and domestic violence

The service offers outreach, where a worker meets in home or an out of office location. During these visits, the worker may provide information and support, referral to other services, advocacy and informal counselling.

The service may provide an opportunity for the parent and children to have fun and meet other young parents through social events and activities.

Parents will also be sent a monthly newsletter with interest articles about parent and baby health and wellbeing, information about what's on, as well as recipes, tips and new baby arrivals.
