Family Nurse Partnership
The Family Nurse Partnership is a voluntary home visiting programme for first time young mums, aged 19 or under (and dads).
A specially trained family nurse visits the young mum regularly, from early in pregnancy until the child is two.
The Family Nurse Partnership programme aims to enable young mums to:
- Have a healthy pregnancy
- Improve their child’s health and development
- Plan their own futures and achieve their aspirations
The Family Nurse Partnership programme is underpinned by an internationally recognised robust evidence base, which shows it can improve health, social and educational outcomes in the short, medium and long term, while also providing cost benefits.
