Hope for Life - Teenage pregnancy support (Pilot project)

There were 688 teenage mothers out of 10 903 births in the New England area of NSW in 2010.

 

There is a gap in specialised service providers to teenage parents with an unborn child in Moree.

 

Hope For Life is a specialised service that is an advocate for the unborn child of teenage parents.

 

It has an early intervention focus designed to assist teen mothers and their support circle to develop a healthy family environment.

 

A priority of the program is on aboriginal pregnant teenagers to offer support during this challenging, anxious and unknown period of their lives.

 

The 3-year pilot project is now running in Moree, and also services Narrabri, Wee Waa, Inverell, Boggabilla and Mungindi.
