This charity is eligible for the Grow Your Tenner 2013!
The Hartcliffe and Withywood Teenage Parents Project provides practical, emotional and mentoring support to teenage parents and their children in the BS13 area. We provide open access sessions across the estate and deliver an in-house training programme all with creche provision. We aim to promote inclusion, participation, achievement, equal opportunities and self esteem.
The organisation allows young parents and their children to access our service which is specifically set up for them. Most families stay within the organisation for a number of years raising their confidence and self esteem. We deliver drop in sessions from four venues in and around the estate maximising accessibility. All young families gain empowerment through having their voices heard allowing them to access other community services to benefit their individual needs.
We have been able to raise parent's ambitions leading to them gaining NVQ's, attending universities and even opening their own business within the community. Children gain social, educational and development skills within our crèche supporting their continuous success through out school years. 2010 has proved to be one of our best years yet, helping more than 70 families gain a sense of belonging within our community and supporting them to find their path for the future.
The TPP rely on volunteers to work in various ways to help the project thrive and reach its potential to delivering services to young families.
We are thankful for the hard work and commitment existing volunteers bring to the project, such as; helping facilitation of drop-ins, helping out at Child Contact Centre, Open Days, Fun Days.
All volunteers receive and Induction Training and adhere to the projects policies and procedures.
