Sydney Young Parents Program

Our program helps young mums (15-25 years) to develop the skills and confidence they need to create a supportive, nurturing environment so their family can thrive.

We provide:

  • professional individual support and case management in a safe environment
  • access to parenting programs tailored for young parents
  • an opportunity to meet other young parents in a weekly playgroup

Delivered in partnership with Launchpad Youth Community and YWCA NSW.
