Help for young parents

YOUNG parents will be able to get advice when new sessions are launched at a children's centre.

A drop in group for young parents will be available at Eden Hill Sure Start Outreach Centre, in Eden Hill Road, Peterlee.

The group will run every Friday from noon to 3pm starting on April 1.

Many activities and services are provided completely free of charge, including a sensory room experience, soft play room baby massage, a weaning course with free weaning kit, ante-natal care and support, food hygiene training, first aid training and advice on benefits and housing.

Samantha Neil, family worker and lead for the Young Parent's Group, said: "The group is aimed at young parents or young parents-to-be who would like to meet other young people in similar situations, get advice and support and take part in activities.

"There's also a free lunch provided so please feel free to contact us for further details or come along on the day."
