Building A Home Toolkit

The 'Building a Home' brief intervention tool has been designed to use in a 1-2-1 situation. Ideal for a young person aspiring to be a young parent or who is ambivalent about becoming a parent.

The aim of the activity is for young people to understand that foundations ideally need to be in place before having a child and that being a parent sometimes means putting your child’s needs before your own.

The tool includes a guidance/step-by-step page for professonals. Young people with pregnancy intention can also be referred to specialist sexual health outreach nurses where this activity can be offered.
