Abstract or Description

Background and Aims:

The image of young parents in the UK is generally negative, and it has been shown through Sure Start that young parents are very difficult to engage in projects and services. Research has demonstrated that the home situation can have a negative effect on a baby’s development and on family cohesion, physical and mental health.

This research, funded by the Children’s Workforce Development Council (CWDC), aims to explore how the work at Coram Family Parents’ Centre, Young Parents’ Project has engaged young people, using their own visual representations. The project is essentially a photographic project enabling young parents at the Coram to give their impressions of services provided using camera and sound. The pictures and commentary aim to provide insight into how to work with difficult to engage young parents. This would include what they value in a worker and how practice can be improved to take this into account. Additionally, it aims to uncover how practice can be improved to assist young parents to provide positive outcomes for themselves and their children.

It was hoped that the pictures and commentary would provide insight into how to work with difficult to engage young parents. This would include what they value in a worker and how practice can be improved to take this into account. Additionally, how practice can be improved to assist young parents to provide positive outcomes for themselves and their children.
