The Young Mums Program is for young Aboriginal mums aged 25 and under. The service equips young mums with the skills, knowledge and confidence to nurture the wellbeing and development of themselves and their children.

The service works individually and in groups with young mums and their communities by providing education, parenting support and advocacy together with local community support networks.
