Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens (SEPT)

The Brave SEPT (Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens) Program is an interactive Pathway Plan created for expecting and parenting teens to ensure they are connected to parenting support, life support services and educational opportunities in their local communities, Australia-wide.
