To WILD Young Parents Project
Healthy, Safe and Happy young families since 1992
Young parents are twice as likely to have experienced sexual abuse and domestic
abuse in their childhood. They are more likely to have experienced being in care, being excluded from school, poverty, family conflict and criminal
justice. These experiences, before they have children, mean starting a family at a young age is even harder. Research shows that young parents are four times as likely to experience post-natal mental illness, twice as likely to experience domestic abuse, and that by the age of 30 they will still be living in poverty.
What We Do!
WILD is for young mums, young dads and their children, and for young parents who are expecting a baby.
At WILD, we believe that every young parent and child should have the best chance to be Healthy, Safe and Happy.
We know young mums and dads have lots of strengths, skills and talents. We want to help them build a positive future for their family.
We offer weekly groups for young mums and mums to be, with free creches for your little ones.
We offer activities for dads, and one-to-one help from our dads' workers.
We also give one-to-one advice and help, for mums and dads, whether they live with their children or not.
I’m Paige and I attend the Falmouth WILD group with my daughter, Malania.
I was really nervous about starting WILD and especially, meeting new people. I was worried about what others might think of me.
Hi. My names Ellie. I'm 23 years old and I am the mother of two beautiful tiny humans. I was always that bubbly outgoing person, the one who was always smilling and had pride in being a lover of life.
I first joined Wild when I was 18 and WILD have supported me on and off for 4 years.
I have two sons aged 3 and 1.
After my first son was born he was seriously ill. We ended up in Derriford NICU where my tiny, precious bundle was put into a medical coma.
