The Teenage Pregnancy Education Support Officer provides support for all teenage parents aged 16 or under. Referrals should be made as soon as possible to ensure support for the young person even if the chosen path is termination.
Pregnant girls remain in their mainstream school for as long as possible before the birth and are supported back into school appropriately. Assistance is also given to ensure childcare is in place under the Care to Learn Scheme.
Young fathers are also supported educationally and wider support is provided by the designated Young Father’s Support Worker on the Teenage Pregnancy/Respect Yourself team.
Referrals can be made direct to the Teenage Pregnancy Education Support Officer at Cherry Tree Learning Centre on 01384 813739/07824 598658
