Bromford Support colleagues in Northampton have been working with young people at a local senior school to understand the reality of becoming a young parent.

The workshop gave young people opportunity to share their thoughts on teenage pregnancy and explore some myths.

Their were some great learning outcomes from the day with students recognising the difficulties associated with being a young parent, the benefits of contraception and waiting until you are older and financially secure before having a baby.

The Deputy Head Teacher from the school commented: "We have been very pleased to welcome the ladies from Bromford into our school.  Tutors and students alike have found the sessions to be well planned and delivered, highly informative and an effective deterrent against teenage pregnancy.  I would highly recommend this programme for all teenagers".
