by Barnardos


The Barnardos Teen Parent Programme supports young mothers to ensure that they can be the best parents they can be. The service provides holistic support services, one-to-one counselling sessions, education materials, parenting support and training to teenage parents and their families - empowering young mothers to achieve their full potential and be the best parents they can be. This funding will support 11 teen mothers to return to education.

Young pregnant or parenting teenagers are at risk of leaving school or other education programmes due to an unplanned pregnancy. Leaving education can have a permanent and lasting impact on the life and well being of these young parents and their children.


The Barnardos Teen Parent programme aims to target those young pregnant or parenting teenagers who are at risk of leaving school or other education programmes due to an unplanned pregnancy. We also target young parents who have already left school early - before, during, or after their pregnancy. In addition, we prioritise supporting students who have not completed second level education or state examinations.

Long-Term Impact

Funding from this project will provide support for 11 young parents to continue their education to completion benefiting both parents and children.
