Family Nurse Partnership
Family Nurses work with young, first-time parents under the age of 18, delivering an intensive programme over 2 and a half years from pregnancy to the child reaching the age of 2 years. The programme aims to promote parenting confidence by improving the health, wellbeing and self-efficacy of young parents, supporting them to be the best parents they wish to be.
Family Support Practitioners work to support first-time parents under the age of 24 who are under the care of the Health Visiting service. They deliver a structured programme from the antenatal period until the child reaches 1 year. The programme aims to promote positive health and wellbeing principles, supporting child development and parenting confidence. The programme is maintained and supervised by the Family Nurse Partnership team.
