By Young Parents, For Young Parents

Bringing Up Baby was born in February 2012 when a group of teenage parents took part in the NHS Tayside Teenage Pregnancy Research Project in partnership with charity Pure Media UK. The group established a need for a service created specifically for young parents and their needs.

Following extensive research, teambuilding and fundraising, Bringing Up Bay officially launched in December 2013. The project is run by young parents, for young parents.

WHAT DO WE DO?

During the initial research process, young parents found that a lack of work experience or educational attainment left them unable to pursue their ambitions. It proved difficult to gain valuable work experience while juggling the demands of raising a young family. The team devised a work experience program allowing parents to work alongside their children while developing key skills for the workplace and working towards qualifications in their chosen field.

A core team- made up of young parents- deliver the Bringing Up Baby project as part of the work experience program. They run weekly sessions for young families often in partnership with local organisations.  The team have delivered sessions in arts and crafts, sensory play, toddler dance, baby yoga and massage, rhymetime, book bug, healthy eating and cookery, outdoor play and drama.

Sessions offer the opportunity for young parents to mix with other families their own age sharing advice and support in a friendly, informal setting. Families can also sample sessions they may not be able to afford otherwise. All sessions at Bringing Up Baby are free of charge.

If you are a young parent looking to get in touch with Bringing Up Baby or a professional who would like to find out more about our project, there are a number of ways you can reach us. Simply get in touch using the contact details below. We look forward to hearing from you!
