Listening to young people
A short film that gives a flavour of the Young Parents' workshop at an inclusive community venue, in partnership with Forward Thinking Birmingham and Birmingham Women & Children's hospital. Looking forward to building on this innovative work, focusing particularly on care leavers and how best to support them as they become parents, sometimes with no positive parenting role model. With thanks also to Leeds Teaching Hospital who ran our first ever Whose Shoes event with young parents.
