A Bright Beginning
Bright Beginnings is a project within No Limits which helps vulnerable young parents (17 to 25 years old) to improve all aspects of their health and the health of their baby. We received a phone call from social services asking if a Bright Beginnings worker could attend a discharge meeting. A Bright Beginnings worker attended the meeting to find that Jo, a young mother of a three day old baby, was homeless with no family supporting her.
Having been housed, we arranged for Jo to receive weekly support from a befriender to ensure that she could receive support with her health, parenting and her new born baby’s health. If you would like to become a volunteer mentor for Bright Beginnings to support vulnerable young parents in need, find out more here.
