Butterflies are a friendly Young Parents Group. The groups are specially for parents under the age of 20. It is an opportunity for young parents to meet new friends, get advice, information and support whilst having fun. We offer lots of activities and a safe place for your little ones to play.
The group is run by experienced, qualified and approachable youth workers, who offer support, advice and a friendly face. Whilst attending Butterflies young parents can access advice and support from other professionals such as : midwives, health visitors, nursery nurses, early years educators.
Talking and meeting other young parents who are in a similar situation can make young people feel less alone, sharing stories and learning from one another. Butterflies offers a safe place to meet other young parents and let the little ones play with other children.
The group organises loads of activities, such as trips away, cooking sessions and shows you ways to help you bond with your baby and record your baby's development.
Butterflies Young Parents Group, Trafford PCT and Connexions are running a Young Mums To Be Course, it is specifically designed for younger parents in preparation for pregnancy, labour and life with a new baby.
