Young Parents

As the median age of women giving birth increases, this can negatively affect our perception of young people becoming parents. 

Almost 15% of births are to parents under the age of 24.[1] Young parents have different needs to those of other age groups. For example many may be studying, and need to be supported with appropriate services and programs. Young parents may face disadvantage through early school leaving, having no or low qualifications, unemployment or low paid work, living in poor housing, experiencing depression or social isolation and being dependent on income support.[2] Support can be essential for young parents trying to achieve their parental goals while maintaining their health and wellbeing.
