What we do:
We undertake research focussing on the experiences of vulnerable women,
babies and families. We work in close partnership with user groups. We engage with service
providers to identify ways to improve service delivery.
Providing information and advice
We provide accurate,
user-friendly information to assist vulnerable women and their families to improve access to health care and social support,
obtain appropriate income support, and enter and maintain ‘good’ employment. We support community
workers, clinicians and others to provide advice to vulnerable women and their families.
Providing training and consultancy
We provide web-based and face-to-face training which supports our
information and policy work.
Policy and campaigning
We use our research to contribute to policy development within Government and to increase public
awareness of the circumstances of vulnerable pregnant women, babies and their families.
