The Teen Parent programme is a FREE service providing teenage parents with intensive case management focused on ensuring a highly tailored continuum of care you and your children. We will help you in identifying your needs and remove any barriers you may have from getting access to other services.
We will assist you in accessing any support services you need by working collaboratively with other providers such as immunisation, advocacy, budgeting, healthcare or to finding child care and provide support to you every step of the way.
We will visit you in your home or at a place you feel comfortable in.
