dc.description.abstractIn 1999 a report by the Social Exclusion Unit (SEU) identified that the children of younger parents, and indeed younger parents themselves, were more likely to experience poor outcomes. The government’s ten year Teenage Pregnancy Strategy marked a renewed focus on teenage pregnancy as a priority area for intervention. Central to its aims are the reduction of teenage pregnancy rates and; the provision of support which will improve the life chances of teenage parents and their children. Sure Start local programmes are expected to reach certain targets regarding contact with, and registration of, pregnant women in their areas. In acknowledging the ‘apprehensions of teenage parents about taking part in activities with older parents’ (Sure Start Unit, 2005, p.571) the advice for working with teenage parents also highlights the need for centres to adopt a specialised, young person-centred approach to providing services for younger parents. The aim of this commissioned research project was to examine the provision of services for younger parents by Sure Start Jolly Giraffe at Halton Lodge Children’s Centre.en_US
