  • mothers and babies support

    asphaleia provides both outreach and accommodation support to mums or those who are pregnant aged 16 - 24. These placements are often made available for mums who are looked after children in some respect, whether they have been in foster care, are an asylum seeker or have been highlighted as being at risk by Social Services and needing extra support.

    asphaleia care can offer accommodation specific to them and their children which provides a safe and nurturing environment. These placements are offered in line with current health and safety policy with regard to mother and baby placements and offer specific and necessary equipment needed to nurture a baby safely. All staff are trained and implement a system of developing the mother to become a successful parent.

    care outreach workers are involved in visiting the properties on a regular basis and ensuring the mums and their children are living in a safe environment. Some mothers experience difficulties raising their child and care provide a support network around them. Young mothers receive guidance and support to be able to look after themselves and their children. The staff work with a range of other professionals top offer a joined-up approach and comprehensive package of support. Child development issues are also raised with each young mother, including how each mum could bring this into their homes.

    Each mother has unique needs and care outreach workers feed back to the social worker about their ongoing support needs.

    Our mother and baby support and accommodation service is also available to asylum seekers.

We appreciate the different needs of asylum seekers and adapt our services as needed, to meet these needs.
