Family nurse partnership

Evelina London has been offering the family nurse partnership programme to women under 19 expecting their first baby. Family nurses support first time young mothers to have a healthy pregnancy and provide information and support to the mother until their baby is two years old.  

We are no longer taking new referrals for this service.  

If you live in Lambeth or Southwark and are currently taking part in the family nurse partnership programme, your family nurse will contact you to discuss how Evelina London’s health visiting team will continue to support you. 

Support for young mothers

If you are professional looking to make a referral to the family nurse partnership programme for a first time mother under the age of 19, please refer them to our early intervention health visiting service. Our team will identify the support the mother needs and deliver universal and enhanced health visiting services that will help them give their child the best start in life.
