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.

Listen to Emily Egan

Hi, my name is Emily Egan. Thanks for listening to my music! Feel free to share. I am a single mom living in West Cork with my amazing family and my beautiful two-year-old daughter Ivy. When I was pregnant with Ivy, I availed of the Teen Parent Support Programme after being told about it by a social worker in the CUMH. Trish was extremely helpful and helped me to feel a lot calmer about the situation. Since then, the programme has continued to support me, and I am so grateful. Being a young mom is hard, and anyone experiencing the scary prospect of becoming a parent at a young age should not be afraid to ask for help.

Most children of teen parents are raised by their mothers alone. However, it is important for children to know that they have two parents and to know who their parents are.
