Young Parent Family Worker Program

The Young Parent Family Worker Program offers sustained home visiting to parents or carers aged up to 25 years.

Workers from the program visit young parents antenatally and postnatally to provide support and referral to appropriate programs. The program will provide information regarding parenting issues and refer young parents to services to assist with any issues including housing, domestic violence support, Child and Family Health Clinics and any other concerns that may arise. The program has a supported playgroup called ‘Young Parent Time’ and is located in the Fairfield area. Clients can be offered limited transport to the group and accepts clients from all council areas.

Referrals are accepted by Health Care or Community Agency professionals (see Karitane Referral), or clients can self refer to the program by contacting Karitane Linking Families on 9754 2655, Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm.
