Youth Futures WA

The NEST - Assisting Teenage mothers with accommodation & l

Becoming a teenage mother brings with it a number of challenges. Many of our clients are also juggling parenting with difficult circumstances such as abusive or unsupportive families, domestic violence and homelessness. By providing teenage mothers and their infants with a safe home and support, Youth Futures aims to help young parents address these issues and break the cycle of poverty and disadvantage.

To ensure that teenage mothers are able to maintain custody of their child we are seeking funds to develop packages on parenting and life skills which will equip them with the confidence to live independently, care for their child and plan for the future.

How will the funds be used?

Your generous donation will be used to deliver:

Parenting skills such as breast feeding, the importance of tummy time, play interaction and introducing solids.

Life skills such as budgeting, setting goals, cooking, cleaning, laundry and home maintenance.

Playgroups and activities where young mothers can form social support networks for the future

Key Areas of Expenditure
