Romsey Mill's Young Parents Programme has been chosen as a regional finalist for the East of England region, for a Philip Lawrence Award. The programme works to support teenage and young parents and their families, equipping them with skills that encourage independence and progress.
The award recognises the Young Parents Programme as one of the best projects in the region, and is a testament to the passion and commitment of young people in the programme who are making a difference in the community. A youth judging panel were responsible for choosing the regional finalists from over 200 entries received this year. They were particularly impressed by the programme and commented that it was, 'Taking a fresh look at teenage parent groups and developing ideas that others don't have.'
