Young mother and baby unit

Our mother and baby unit takes referrals directly from Merton Local Authority. It has six bed spaces in two shared houses.

We house young women aged 16-21 who are pregnant or have a child under the age of two and need housing.

The young mothers find it helpful to live with others they can identify with, who are facing the same challenges as they are. They provide a lot of support for each other and we supplement that with a specialist worker who helps them to develop their parenting skills.

We provide training for independent living and skills training to improve their employment prospects so that, as their child grows up, they are in a better position to support themselves.
