Young Parents Programme

supporting teenage and young parents for success

"I've become an adult. Coming to the groups reassures me I'm doing things right with my child."

The Young Parents Programme is a leading provider of services for teenage and young parents in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire. It provides intensive personal, educational and parenting support, equipping young parents and their children for a positive future. The programme includes:

  • home visits and one-to-one support
  • antenatal classes tailored for young mums and dads
  • postnatal groups for peer support and child development
  • courses such as the Arts Award, literacy and numeracy
  • support to move on to further training, education, employment
  • support to integrate into local community groups.

We also offer one-to-one and group support for young fathers (age 25 and under) - information about becoming and being a dad; looking after babies; work, college or training; and arranging to see your child.

"It has given me, as a father, a lot of support to be a good father."

For more information, contact the Young Parents Programme team on 01223 566021, or email us.

Some of our courses are subsidised by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and part financed by the 2014-20 European Social Fund (ESF) programme.   This funding is managed by Cambridgeshire County Council, Adult Learning and Skills.   A short video covering the background of ESF, what it does, how it helps and who benefits is available on the European Union website: http://ec.europa.eu/esf/home.jsp
