    Story

    Hello Everyone!

    Thank you for visiting this page. Have a read and if you can please make a donation, no matter how much, every penny counts.

    I'm raising money to help fund a weekly support group for current and expecting young parents aged 16-20.Having a child is never easy no matter what age you are. I recall the stresses and worries that all new parents go through, for some the stresses can get to much.
    From then I vowed to do something to help others.
    My wish is to provide a place where young parents can come and meet people that are in the same situation, share ideas and thoughts going forward regarding family life. A place where they feel wanted and valued as people and not being labeled and wrote off because of their age. Meet new friends, and the best ways to balance education/ work along with looking after a young child. I remember how I felt when I became a dad aged 18 Often I'd be up all hours not knowing what to do or who to turn to. Most of the time I used to bottle all my stresses & worries up and not tell anyone.
    My aim is to make each parent go home feeling happier than when they came. Happy parents = Happy children. I'll do everything I can to provide this as I'm so passionate about it. My little boy will be 4 in December he attends nursery and is a very happy boy with bags of confidence for his age. Money raised will go towards the facility hire, staff training and family first aid courses. Updates will be posted. Thank you for reading and once again if you can make a donation it'll be massively appreciated.
    Many Thanks
    Joe Nickson

        This is a brilliant idea mate. As a young parent myself who previously had never held a baby before my own I understand how hard life becomes and the struggles to make our own as happy as can be!
