Investment theme: Building skills and confidence
Towards the cost of trips out, tutors, transport, snacks/refreshments and administration for a young parents group.
Amount awarded: £500
Location: City of Edinburgh
Young parents can often be isolated both socially and emotionally but the group's work over the past two years has had very positive outcomes. The parents who were involved initially have now moved on and many are working and have developed very good support networks. They are now working with some new or soon to be parents, some of whom are particularly vulnerable individuals. They benefit from coming along and sharing experiences with those in a similar situation, offering each other support and reassurance whilst having access to advice and support from CYP staff.
