Seeking items for young parenting group
We run a parenting group for young people aged 15 to 25 who have a disability and are either expectant parents, parents or would like to one day be parents. The aim of the group is to provide practical skills needed for parenting or care giving in a safe and supportive learning environment.
Many of the people we work with have had or will have their children removed from their care. Our hope is to support the participants to be the best parents they can be, and to reduce the risk of their future children being forcibly removed.
The participants are a diverse group, and many have had complex life experiences including their own experiences in out of home care, as well as homelessness, poor mental health, domestic and family violence, poverty and isolation.
