A project to help young parents through the challenges of caring for a baby is set to be opened in Fakenham.

The Young Parents Drop In will run every Monday from 11am-2pm at the Salvation Army's basement hall in Oak Street, starting on June 1. The group offers a supportive environment for mothers and fathers under the age of 21 to bring their babies and enjoy a free lunchtime snack while relaxing and socialising with other parents.

It will be run by Nicky Harris and Eunice Norwood, described as “been there, done that” mothers who have already experienced the joys - and difficulties - of bringing up a young family.

Project manager Sarah Durke said: “Young people who become parents can feel isolated and unfairly judged. At the Young Parents Drop In they will be able to meet other young people and make new friends in a friendly, non-judgmental atmosphere.”
