Fresh Start

How we can help

We work with mothers who have had one or more children recently accommodated by the local authority (inc SGO’s). The service aims to support women to take time out from parenting in order to address their loss, build resilience, increase well-being and develop new skills for future living.

The service works collaboratively with women to help them make sustainable changes and address the multiple and complex risks in their lives e.g. substance misuse, mental health, domestic abuse, parenting capacity, adverse childhood experiences and unsafe housing conditions.

We aim to work with the women for approximately 9 months and alongside our support Fresh Start will also help the women to access:

  • Drug and alcohol services
  • Loss and grief support – inc. childhood experience
  • Health services – sexual health inc. accessing contraception, GP, dental, etc.
  • Education and employment services
  • Housing services
