Youth Family and Community Connections (YFCC)

Helping Young Parents Program

The Helping Young Parents Program provides three components that work together to offer young parents under the age of 25, particularly those not engaged in school or work, with structure throughout the week alongside intensive tailored support for those struggling with social or educational engagement.

The Service:

  • Coordinates the delivery of a range of activities from a range of providers and coordinates communication between providers working with young parents
  • Provides a program of regular events focused on parenting skills and personal development
  • Offers young parents an opportunity to engage with a key worker to planning and actions, and hold themselves accountable to change, transition and development as a parent responsible for a family.
