Bright Beginnings helps vulnerable young parents aged 17-25 years old to improve all aspects of their health and the health of their baby. This support is delivered by volunteer mentors who are matched with the young parents and become a trusted, reliable, knowledgeable adult in their lives.
Volunteer mentors meet with you regularly and can support you with anything you’re struggling with, particularly concerning your health, your child’s health or questions you may have about being a parent.
Our Bright Beginnings Mentors support you to navigate your way through processes, meetings and paperwork including those relating to your child’s health (e.g. immunisations), childcare and learning. We can advise you on the physical care of your child, help you to meet your child’s emotional health and encourage a stable, stimulating environment. Your Bright Beginnings Mentor may also encourage you to access other services to help you with your own health needs.
