Welcome to the Teen Parents Support Programme
| Are you under 20 years of age?|
Are you expecting a baby?
Do you already have a child?
|The Teen Parents Support Programme -TPSP for short- is a support service for young mothers, young fathers and their families from pregnancy until the baby is 2 years of age.|
We offer support, information and advocacy in all areas of a young parent's life including health, relationships, parenting, child care, social welfare entitlements, education, training and anything else about which the mother or father is concerned.
This support can be tailored and delivered in a way that best suits the individual needs of each young parent. For more information on the type of supports that are available please go to our Support page.
|Currently there are 11 TPSPs throughout Ireland. To find out if there is a TPSP in your area go to Where to find a TPSP.|
TPSP Pre-budget Submission 2019
The Strategy for Education and Skills 2016-2018
|Through our experience of working with teenage parents, TPSP staff have built up a range of knowledge and skills which have helped us work effectively with this group of young people. We have now developed a new resource The TPSP Toolkit to support both TPSP staff and other community-based professionals in their work with teenage parents.|
TheTPSP is offering a free one-day Workshop for professionals who wish to use this resource in their work with pregnant and parenting teens and their families.
The next TPSP Toolkit Workshop will take place in the Ashling Hotel, Dublin on Friday March 8th 2019.
