What we do
As well as providing accommodation we have a number of programmes that help residents develop the skills they need to parent confidently and have healthy, well-cared-for newborn babies.
Our programmes include:
- a life skills programme that teaches the basis of home management, budgeting, cooking and housekeeping - residents take an active role in the daily routine of the home learning through "hands on experience"
- parenting skills that include looking after a newborn, education, involvement with medical professionals and attendance at antenatal classes
- an educational programme that encourages residents to continue with their studies at one of the local schools or through correspondence education, we also work with each resident to develop a work/education plan for after the birth of their baby
- counselling to help residents mend broken or strained relationships with family and friends.
