Parent and Child Accommodation

Our Parent and Child Accommodation is where expectant mothers or single parents can stay for up to 2 years or until your child is 24 months.

You will receive support and guidance to prepare for your baby’s birth and their first two years. You will also be supported to gain the skills you need to support your family independently.

The self-contained flats all have their own kitchen and bathroom. The flats are located in a zoned area as we have found that young people thrive better in smaller communities. Our young parents form a fantastic community and informally help each other.

Our Easy Peasy Pods project provides additional support for young parents and their children with weekly activities and social time.

Parent and Child residents have access to a high quality social space to spend time together with their children and their neighbours. The Providence Room is equipped with comfortable seating, a range of toys, sensory equipment and books.
