Teen Pregnancy and Support For Young Parents

How do we support young parents?

Our Teenage Pregnancy Programme works alongside the Daisy Team, covering the Colchester and Tendring area. We support young parents with pregnancy health and wellbeing, as well as housing and benefits advice.

We also run group sessions, inviting parents to join us with a variety of activities including picnics, arts & crafts and child attachment & development sessions.

Our latest funded programme allows us to provide further support for young parents between the ages of 18-25.
