Young Parents Program (NSW)

Supporting young parents and their children to build independence and resilience.

Young Parents Program provides safe and nurturing residential accommodation and outreach for young parents.

Young Parents Program works with parents aged 13 to 25 with complex needs. We use an evidence-based, child-centred and therapeutically-informed approach to help young parents build independence and confidence.

Parents can reach their full potential

In a safe, nurturing family environment mothers and fathers take part in long-term early intervention at one of our four NSW locations. New parents can access:

  • therapeutic case management
  • weekly parenting classes
  • educational and vocational opportunities
  • life skills groups
  • quality child development services and playgroups.
